Brick Red

Unbelievable… The basic material of the top red portion of Potala, winter palace of Dalai Lamas in Lhasa, was not bricks nor stones, but red plants in order to reduce the weight.

Tibet – the highland in China

Longing to visit Tibet for the past 20 years and I finally got a chance to be there in April…

My original target was only the Potala Palace in Lhasa given that it’s the most famous place in Tibet.  Surprisingly, I’ve found there are a lot of natural beauties around areas like Linzhi: the blossom of peach trees, the thousand years glacier, the snow mountains, the lakes, just to name a few.

The Jokhang Temple in Lhasa, the religious centre of Tibet is a must go for us to understand how Tibetan worship their gods!

Last but not the least, we visited the Potala Palace, the centre of power in Tibet…  There are too many things we can learn from this palace, it’s history, it’s art, it’s culture, it’s precious collections, it’s religious background, it’s architecture…

You can only be there to taste it… 🙂
