    ... floors above ground, and four below to support the structure. It was destroyed once, but built again. Successive Dalai Lamas and monks have lived here and ministered to Tibetan citizens's spirituality as well as work with Beijing as a seat of government.

    Having checked into my room late last night, I ventured outside grabbed something to eat and went to sleep.

    Next day we had another long drive over two 5000m passes, past the Tibetan holy Yamdrok Tso Lake, and into Lhasa by mid-afternoon. We were ...

    ... from different regions of Tibets as well as lot of monks in their red robes. Found out later that a lot of people come into Lhasa from all over Tibet as part of a buddhist pilgrimage. Seems that people can be found at all hours of the day walking clockwise around various holy sights.
