Located on Barkhor Square in Lhasa, Tibet Autonomous Region, Jokhang Temple, which means "House of the Buddha", is one of the most sacred and important temples in the Tibet Autonomous Region. Built by King Songtsan Gampo, probably in 642, Jokhang Temple has a history of more than 1350 years. The architectural style of the temple is a mixture of Indian vihara design, Chinese Tang Dynasty design and Nepalese design. [Dudiaorangongy/]
