Jokhang Temple

Beside the Potala Palace in Lhasa Tibet, 1300 years old and one of Tibet's holiest of shrines. The golden-roofed Jokhang Temple was built in commemoration of the marriage of Tang princess Wen Cheng to King Songsten Gampo (617-650 A.D), and houses a pure gold Buddha which was brought to Tibet by the princess. The Jokhang Temple had been restored and expanded many times from the Yuan Dynasty to the Qing dynasty, until today's size. It was listed on the roll of the UNESCO's World Heritage Sites in 2000 as part of the Potala Palace.
