The Potala palace is Lhasa's most imposing architectural landmark and it just local inside of the city, in the northwestern corner of the city. also no photo insides.
Security check before entrance, no liquid or food can be brought insides. Very interesting that ticket office is on top of Mountain. tickets need to buy 1 day before.
The formar summer residence of the DAILAI Lama.
Norbulingka is not as busy as Jakhang temple or Potala, only a few visitors, very quite place, garden style. I like it very much, it close very early in the summer time (around 4pm).
The Lama there just use normal cellphone, i can not see iPhone.. Haha..
Norbulingka is much bigger than both temple before. it take us 4 hours more to visit, and only 2 more hours for Potala.
