Lhasa, the capital of Tibet Autonomous Region, located on the north bank of Lhasa River with a history more than 1300 years. It is the political, economic, cultural and religious center of Tibet. Lhasa in Tibetan means “the holy place”, or “the land of gods”. As early as seventh century after the emperor Songtsen Gampo unified the whole of Tibet, he moved his capital from Yarlong to Lhasa and founded Tubo Kingdom. It was said that Lhasa was only a wasteland full of grass when princes Wencheng reached Tibet from Xi’an. Later, the famous Jokhang temple was built. Pilgrims from all over Tibet visit this precious sight, many hotels and residences were built around Jokhang temple, then the embryo of the old township of Lhasa was formed.
