    ... to meet my guide to do the pilgrim circuit at Jokhang Temple. My guide ends up being a no show and with the owner of my tour unable to locate him I set off again on my own. The temple is set in the center of Lhasa and if you visit in the morning you are likely to get swept up in the droves of devotees circling the complex saying their prayers. Originally built 1300 years ago to house a Buddha brought by the kings Nepalese wife the complex now ...
