“This is the holiest site in Tibet- its the most incredible of experiences- if you are fortunate to take that once in a lifetime trip to Tibet you really mustn't miss the Jokhang and the Barkhor- the essence of Tibet”
“You'll see praying monks and ordinary people, a lot of Buddhas - even some centuries old - and splendid golden roofs with wonderful views over Lhasa downtown and Potala palace.”
“We had spent two (2) full days touring Lhasa and we had the opportunity to visit the Drepung, Sera, Jokhang and Potala Monasteries - all different and worthwhile stops to visit and enjoy the views.”
“we visited Drepung Monatery before Potala Palace, so it was a practice of walking up the stone stairs, From Drepung Monastery, you can see the whole new Lhasa city, great view, and the Monastery itself stands tall...”
“... following the prayers to walk around the Jokhang Temple; visiting shops and having a dinner on the second floor at a Tibetan vegetarian restaurant while enjoying the window view of lively Jokhang Square in dusk.”
“After you soak in they sights and the incense meander through the shops for prayer beads, doi beads, amulets and other souvenirs of Tibet.”
