View of the Barkhor

Lhasa, Tibet

The Barkor is the best place in Lhasa. It is a maze of streets that circle around Jokhang Temple and several other smaller temples. The streets of the Barkor are lined with shops selling everything from antiques to yak hair slings for nomads. The Barkhor winds its way around the old part of Lhasa. Most of Lhasa now looks like any other small Chinese city, but when you are walking through the Barkhor you are taking a step back in time. I spend most of my time in Lhasa around the Barkhor.
