The template was built during the reign of King Songtsan Gampo for his two new brides: Princess Wencheng from Tang Dynasty of China and Princess Bhrikuti from Nepal.

We end the day with a leisurely walk along Barkor Street a public square located around Jokhang Temple in Lhasa, Tibet, China. The Barkor is a popular devotional street for pilgrims and locals. It's about one kilometre long and you'll get to see a number of nobles' houses.
