Located on the Red Hill in the center of Lhasa, Potala Palace is an architectural complex that looks imposing and sacred. Originally, it was built by the King Songtsan Gambo for the Princess Wencheng in Tang Dynasty (618-907). After being rebuilt in the 17th century, it became the residence of the Dalai Lama and his apprentices. Besides, it is the center of religion and politics in Tibet.
