New Palace of Panchen

The New Palace of Panchen is one of the best known tourist attractions in Shigatse, Tibetan Autonomous Region. It stands south of the Tashihunpo Monastery, built by the Tenth Panchen Lama in 1954 as a summer retreat. This magnificent palace greatly mixes both traditional and modern architectural styles, housing many cultural relics and art treasures.

There are three gates of the New Palace of Panchen. Entering the gates, visitors can view the palace interior, including the Panchen Lama bedrooms, drawing rooms, sutra hall, Buddha hall and Buddhist Guardian Hall. The palace houses a number of precious cultural relics including spectacular frescos. The most famous fresco is "Phakpa Meeting Kublai Khan", depicting Lama Chogyal Phakpa (1235-1280 AD) joining the court of Kublai Khan (1215-1294 AD) as imperial spiritual teacher.
