The most sacred temple in Lhasa, the Jorkhang Temple is located in central Lhasa. Visited by people from all over Tibet, the temple was built in 647, and is the earliest wood-and-masonry structure built in Tibet. Craftsmen from Nepal, Tibet and China worked together on this temple and hence, we can see different styles of architecture in this temple.
