The Potala Palace perches on the Hongshan Mountain in Lhasa, the capital of Tibet autonomous region, at some 3,650 meters above sea level. The magnificent palace, with a history of about 1,400 years, is the largest and best-preserved palace complex in Tibet. The stone-and-wood-structured palace was first built in 641 by Songtsan Gambo, ruler of the Tubo Kingdom, for his bride Princess Wencheng of the Tang Dynasty (618-907). It was added to UNESCO's World Cultural Heritage List in 1994.
