The quadrangle of streets surrounding the Jokhang is the Barkhor- Lhasa's most interesting pilgrimage circuit.

Walking up to the hill is a pleasant thing, an easy break from the solemn ambience inside the halls and chapels. At the plat roof of hillside, you can have very good views of the whole Lhasa city and the distant mountains.All Tibetan carpets have cotton 'fringe' on the ends, this is the natural remaining ends of the weft threads once the carpet is cut off the loom.
