About Potala Palace

Renowned as the historical residence of the Dalai Lama since the 7th century, Potala Palace is now a Tibetan museum and UNESCO World Heritage Site on the Red Hill of Lhasa. Perched at an altitude of 3,700 metres, the palace has more than 1,000 rooms harbouring 10,000 shrines and at least 200,000 statues.

Inside the walled, gated and turreted complex, you’ll find the White Palace, which is the primary ceremonial Hall holding the throne of the Dalai Lama. Discover thousands of painted scrolls, murals and objects made of gold, silver, porcelain and jade. You can also join thousands of daily pilgrims making their way to Phakpa Lhakhang chapel and the burial tombs of past Dalai Lamas.

In the Red Palace, there are winding passages, chapels and small galleries. Visit Dharma Cave and the Saint's Chapel to see carved statues of Princess Wen Cheng and Songtsen Gampo.

Getting there

A shuttle goes to Potala Palace from Gonggar Airport in about 20 minutes or it’s about a 25-minute train ride from Lhasa Railroad Station. After visiting the palace, you can walk about one kilometre to see Jokhang Temple and shop on Barkhor Street.
