Jokhang Temple, Lhasa Reviews
A Buddhist temple located in the Barkhor Square in Lhasa. This temple was considered as one of the most sacred and important temples in Tibet. Very impressive architectural designs. I would definitely recommend you to visit this place with a local tour guide who can explain the history for you. Also, bear in mind that you can only take photographs outside of the temple but not inside, as photographs are prohibited and it is considered to be very rude if you take pictures at indoor places.
An ancient and holy temple in the middle of old town. Many, many pilgrims walking on the streets around the temple. What a spectacle! I hope that the Tibetan culture and way of life are preserved for future generations.
Most Revered Temple in Tibet A group of 15 of us travelling together, visited the most revered Jokhang temple, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, in the morning on 06th June 2018. We arrived at the front of the temple premises through the large courtyard facing the temple. Ahead of the two smoke spewing incense burners, continuously fuelled by devotees, pilgrims were prostrating themselves and worshipping in front of the temple entrance demonstrating their religious fervour, beliefs and devotion. All visitors go through a security check before entering the temple. We entered through the main entrance that faces the west. After passing along the entry corridor decorated with paintings, we entered the main yard surrounded by four buildings. All around the yard are various Buddhist paintings. There is a seat for the Dalai Lama too on the corridor of the Eastern building. Although photographs were permitted here in the yard, no further photographs were permitted within the main temple. There are two queues to enter the main southern building, one for local devotees who would spend time within for hours to make offerings and the other for tourists. Though it is very crowded within the main temple, I felt the pious atmosphere permeating a feeling of well-being and happiness within me. There are many jewelled statues within the temple. The 1.5 metre tall gilded statue of Sakyamuni Buddha, as a prince when he was 12 years old, occupies the pride of place. The statue is dressed with fine luxurious clothing and wears a crown decked with jewels. Our guide told us that this is the most venerated object in the whole of Tibet. People wait long hours in the queue to make offerings and obtain its blessings. After exiting the main building, I climbed up to the second storey platform, where there are some Buddhist souvenirs for sale. The style of architecture and the stylish and graceful roof is seen at close quarters from this floor. I spent some time here enjoying the ambient surrounding among the happy tourists who seemed to be contented. After exiting the temple building I walked anticlockwise, as is the custom, along Barkhor Street that goes all around the temple. Here too I saw people prostrating themselves on the ground to show their devotion. This is a place that should not be missed when in Lhasa. It is a place to observe and feel how devoted Tibetan Buddhists are!! Attire: Modest clothing appropriate for a religious environment.
The Jokhang also known as the Qoikang Monastery, Jokang, Jokhang Temple, Jokhang Monastery and Zuglagkang is a Buddhist temple in Barkhor Square in Lhasa, the capital city of Tibet. Tibetans, in general, consider this temple as the most sacred and important temple in Tibet. The temple is currently maintained by the Gelug school, but they accept worshipers from all sects of Buddhism. The temple's architectural style is a mixture of Indian vihara design, Tibetan and Nepalese design. [SOURCE: Wikipedia]
Awesome! This is the real heart of Tibetan buddhism, unfortunately disappearing gradually under Chinese urban expansion. TIBET, THE WORLD SUPPORTS YOU!!!
