--The summer palace of Dalai Lama

Norbulingka means ''Treasure Park" in Tibetan, used to be the summer palace of Dalai Lama situated in the western suburb of Lhasa City, on the bank of Kychu River, about one kilometer southwest to the Potala Palace. It has a garden with 360,000 square meters and it has 374 rooms in various buildings. It is the biggest man-made garden in Tibet. It is a marvelous combination of the traditional Tibetan architecture and nature scenes.

Norbulingka Lhasa

Norbulingka Lhasa

Norbulingka was built in the 1740s, by the Seventh Dalai Lama, and became the summer residence for successive Lamas, where they solved the political problems and held festive celebrations. After a series of expansions and renovations, the appearance was improved with pavilions, gardens and woods. It has now been turned into a park open to the public. The Kelsang Potrang, Tsokyil Potrang, Golden Linka and Takten Migyur Potrang are all palaces making up Norbulingka, with each palace complex is divided into three sections - the palace section, the section in front of the palaces and the woods

The Treasure Park both reflects the ethnic and religious traits of the Tibetan people and embodies the architecture style of inland China. It is of great cultural value and was listed by UNESCO as a World Cultural Heritage Site in 2001 as an extension of Potala Palace.
