Barkhor Street, Lhasa

(360+ reviews on the web)
Historic Walking Area
Take a walk along Barkhor Street, which encircles a temple and showcases many different aspects of Tibetan culture. Reputedly the street evolved out of the worn track made by visiting pilgrims in the years following the temple's construction; devotees still perform the ritual circumambulation today, holding prayer rules as they move in a clockwise direction. Varied stalls and shops sit on both sides of the street, selling locally made handicrafts, religious icons, and clothing. Stop for some refreshment at one of the many teahouses, and watch the daily life of the locals all around. See Barkhor Street and all Lhasa has to offer by arranging your trip with our Lhasa family vacation planner.

  • Has become a major tourist destination. Food shop, souvenir shop, rabbit in the corner shop is chock full. This is where the varied cuisine. Of course is a big believer in the body and also about half the praying have to show. Don't clean the store is small, but guests enjoyed refreshments, leisurely looked down the street.

  • This is the street surrounding the Jokhang Temple located in the heart of the old town. For the offseason, not tourists, Tibetan Buddhist pilgrims worship and while walking, we have experienced the scenery unique to Tibet.
