Walk around Barkhor Square

Barkhor street - A good place to observe the locals and the local traders

Take a walk around the busy Barkhor Square. The street around the square is filed with shops selling souvenir items.  You will find a lot of Tibetan pilgrims prostrating and circumambulating around the Jokhang Temple that lies at the centre of the square. Barkhor Square is a good place to observe the locals and the local traders.  This has been an important spot for Tibetans living in Lhasa as this was where they used to congregate to observe important occasions. Take your camera with you as the place offers plenty of photo opportunities.
