Tibetan Photos: Barkhor from roof of the Jokhang Temple
View of Barkhor Square from Jokhang Temple Roof

Prostrators reach out in the late afternoon noon toward the front of the Jokhang Temple. Behind the prostrators is an enclosure which contains a willow tree said to be planted by King Songtsen Gampo's Chinese wife, Princess Wen Cheng. To the far right is a 3 metre high stone stele, which carries a bilingual inscription of the Tibetan-Chinese agreement of 821 between the Tibetan king, Tri Ralpchen, and the Chinese emperor, Wen Wu Hsiao-te Wang-ti.
