The Potala Palace in Lhasa, Tibet

Potala Palace in Lhasa, the capital of Tibet.

The Potala Palace in Lhasa used to be the winter palace of the Dalai Lamas. Unfortunately this ended when the fourteenth Dalai Lama (the current one) fled to India in 1959. The impressive building is located on a hilltop near the old town of Lhasa.
