Barkhor Square in front of the Jokhang Monastery

Barkhor Square in front of the Jokhang Monastery
Barkhor Square, the approach to the complex taken by most tourists today.
The sky shows a dramatic spectacle.
It is a large plaza built in 1985. The clockwise barkhor circumambulation is close to Johkang Temple, which is a permanent stea. There are totally four sangkangs (a stone building with a shape of pot-belly) in the Jokhang: behind the first two there are two joined enclosures, the other two are regarded as the rear of the Jokhang.
