Norbu Lingka Tours – Tibet, Lhasa, China
About this place
The Norbu Lingka built in 1751 as the summer residence of the Dalai Lama, lies 1.9 miles(3km) west of the Potala Palace. As harsh winters gave way to spring, a grand procession of Lamas and official accompanied the Dalai Lama from the Potala Palace to his summer home.
Norbu Lingka, which means "jeweled garden", is a fitting title for the large compound of buildings and extensive gardens. Successive Dalai Lamas continually expanded the palace and up until 1959, commoners weren`t allowed within it`s walls.
Today this once forbidden palace is ideal for quiet strolls and lazy afternoons. This palace contains some fabulous murals fusing Tibetan history and myth.
