The Jokhang Temple , situated...

by ErnieGal

The Jokhang Temple , situated in the centre of old Lhasa, was originally built in 647 A.D. It is said the site was chosen personally by the wife of King Songtsan Gampo, the Tang Princess Wen Cheng. It was built by craftsmen from Tibet, China and Nepal and thus features different architectural styles. The Jokhang is the spiritual centre of Tibet and the holiest destination for all Tibetan Buddhist pilgrims. In the central hall is the Jokhang's oldest and most precious object -- a sitting statue of Sakyamuni when he was 12 years old. This was carried to Tibet by Princess Wen Cheng from her home in Chang'an in 700 A.D. It is a gilded statue adorned with many jewels, in an elaborate setting. Pilgrims have prostrated themselves in front of this statue for centuries. In front of the Jokhang stands an old and withered willow tree said to be planted by Princess Wen Cheng. In front of the willow is a 3 metre high pillar, which is a treaty stone recording the alliance between the King of Tibet and the Emperor of China in 823 A.D. The three-leves roof of the Jokhang offers splendid views of the Barlchor Streets accross to the Potala Palace. The golden roofs are superbly crafted with many birds, beasts, bells ad other intricate figures. Every Tibetan New Year, which falls some time between January to March, according to the Tibetan Calender, the Jokhang hosts the 'Great Prayer Festival'. This festival was first celebrated in 1409 under the leadership of Tsong Khapa, and has been held annually since the time of the 5th Dalai Lama. During the festivals, thousands of monks come to perform colourful religious activities in and around the Jokhang, and there is much celebration throughout Lhasa.

Jokhang temple

by extrajoce

Tibetans kneel and lie down in front of the Jokhang, as part of a pilgrimage to this most sacred of temples. This is a very respected religious tradition, and one of the most visible ones along with chanting (oom mani padme hum) and using prayer mills.

VIDEOCAM: A MUST WHEN GOING TO SERA MONASTERY

by mavl

make sure you bring a videocam (or at least a digicam with decent video capability) when you go to sera monastery.

why? if you go to the debating courtyard at 3 in the afternoon (pls see my 'sera: best time to visit' things to do tip for more info), you'll get a chance to witness the whole congregation of sera monks feverishly debating with one another (more like screaming at one another, actually).

pictures just won't be enough to capture this intiguing spectacle and no manner of explanation to your friends back home will ever do it justice.

catch it on video!

Annoying tourists!!!

by sugarpuff

Look at all those pesky tourists walking anti-clockwise around the Jokhang Monastery...had they not read up beforehand that you're supposed to only walk clockwise?! I did read about it and did follow it but one time I had to get to a restaurant and it was much quicker to walk anti-clockwise then clockwise and although i wasn't the only one doing it, I certainly felt very self-conscious!
