Potala Palace

                                    Potala Palace-Lhasa

      

After Songtsen Gampo married Princess Wencheng,he built the grand palace Potala Palace in 641, to accommodate her and let his descendants remember the event . However, the original palace was destroyed due to a lightening strike and succeeding warfare during Landamas reign. In seventeenth century under the reign of the Fifth Dalai Lama, Potala was rebuilt. The Thirteenth Dalai Lama expanded it to todays scale. The monastery-like palace, reclining against and capping Red Hill, was the religious and political center of old Tibet and the winter palace of Dalai Lamas. The palace is more than 117 meters (384 feet) in height and 360 (1180 feet) in width, occupying a building space of 90 thousand square meters. Potala is composed of White Palace and Red Palace. The former is for secular use while the later is for religious. The Potala Palace was inscribed to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1994.
