Built in the 17th century, the Potala Palace contains over 1,000 rooms, 10,000 shrines and about 200,000 statues. It is the largest lamasery in the world.
The 13-story-building measures 1,300 feet east-west and 1,150 feet north-south, with sloping stone walls averaging 10 feet thick, and 16 feet thick at the base, and with copper poured into the foundations to help strengthen it against earthquakes.
It took 7,000 workers and 1,500 artists and craftsmen more than 50 years to build the adjoining White and Red Palaces. Walking along Barkhor Bazaar, you can experience the Tibetan culture and buy colorful ethnic handicrafts.
