The whole complex, consisting of halls, stupa-tomb halls (where the relics of the supreme lamas are preserved), shrines, prayer rooms, monks' dormitories and courtyards, is recognized as the world's highest and largest castle palace.

Sera Monastery: Located at the southern slope of the Serawoze Mountain in the northern suburb of Lhasa, the monastery covers an area that was once strewn with wild roses called Sewa. It was built by Sagya Yeshes (1354-1435, who was given the title of the Great Mercy Prince of Dharma during the Ming Dynasty), one of the eight disciples of Zongkapa, founder of the Gelug Sect of Tibetan Buddhism, in 1419. In 1982, the monastery was put under national protection.
Norbulingka: Norbulingka, meaning "treasure park" in the Tibetan language, is a palace and surrounding park in Lhasa, Tibet, which served as the traditional summer residence of the successive Dalai Lamas from the 1780s until the late 1950s.

Tour to the Jokhang Temple, the Drepung Monastery, the Tibet Museum and visit the Barkhor Street.

Jokhang Temple: Jokhang Temple is the spiritual center of Tibet. Everyday pilgrims from every corner of Tibet trek a long distance to the temple. Some of them even progress prostrate by body length to the threshold of the temple. Pilgrims fuel myriad of flickering butter lamps with yak butter, or honor their deities with white scarves (Kha-btags or Hada) while murmuring sacred mantras to show their pieties to the Buddha.
Drepung Monastery: Drepung Monastery is actually a collection of Buddhist chapels and colleges located about 8km west of Lhasa. The word Drepung can be literally translated as "rice pile", a name whose meaning becomes clear when you see the white-walled buildings scattered along the hill. Originally founded in 1416, the monastery in its heyday was home to 10,000 monks (around 1600). In 1530, the second Dalai Lama built his palace here, known as the Ganden Palace, which was used until the fifth Dalai Lama built the Potala.
Tibet Museum: The Tibet Museum was officially inaugurated in October of 1999, with a permanent collection that celebrates the History of Tibetan Culture. The design of the exhibit uses traditional Tibetan architecture such as Tibetan doors, beam-decoration, patterns and so on, in order to create the atmosphere of authentic Tibetan art

Barkhor Street: Located in the old area of Lhasa City, Tibet, Barkhor Street is a very ancient round street surrounding the Jokhang Temple and the Tibetan people are always proud of it. As a symbol of Lhasa, this street is also a must-see place for the tourists.
