Tibet still remains preserved with its enigmatic and deep-rooted culture. A single trip to Tibet can hardly touch on all its offerings.Lhasa, once a restricted city to the foreigners stands as the highest capital in the world, nearly at 3600m. The capital shines with the exhilarating Potala Palace that has 1000 rooms. This palace is the symbol of Tibet and was once the throne of power and the home of the dalai Lamas. Not surprisingly, the Potala palace is the most popular tourist attraction in Tibet. The Jokhang temple is Lhasa's "Cathedral." It shelters Jowo sakyamuni, Tibet's most revered image. The Sera and Drepung monasteries, a short distance outside of Lhasa, were sea's of Buddhist learning. It accommodates thousands of monks and disciples.
