See the Jokhang Temple on a holiday to China
The Jokhang was built in the 7th century in a mix of Indian, Chinese, and Nepalese styles – it is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Jokhang Temple is considered the spiritual centre of Tibet, and is Tibetan Buddhism's holiest temple. Inside you will find the air is thick with devotion and the smell of yak butter candles with the atmosphere made even weightier thanks to the wafting clouds of incense that form an offering to the gods. Whilst many who worship within may be local, some travel the length of the country to visit the Jokhang, so ingrained it is with the national psyche, and whilst you stand amongst the flickering lamps and muttered prayers, you'll start to be able to imagine why.
