What to see in LhasaTotal 13 Attractions

The holy city of Lhasa is the historical capital of Tibet since the 7th century after King Songtsen Gampo unified Tibet, but Neolithic potsherds and implements of bone and stone excavated from the region in 1984 suggest it was a place of human habitation thousand years before Songtsen Gampo’s time. World monuments of Potala palace and Jokhang temple are still functioning right in the city. It is the historical capital as well as the center of Tibet, every year trucks of local pilgrims visit Lhasa for its holy monasteries and temples which are the main Tibet Lhasa attractions for tourists.
