Potala Palace-Paradise in Flags

The Potala Palace is one of the most magnificent buildings in China. Let’s go into it. If you can’t get to that mysterious place, let’s get to know it on the flag.

Potala Palace, located in the capital of Tibet Autonomous Region of China, is the world’s highest elevation building on Mabri Mountain, northwest of Lhasa. It is a grand building with palaces, castles, flags and temples. It is also the largest and most complete ancient palace complex in Tibet. The Potala Palace is built on hills with overlapping buildings. It is an outstanding representative of Tibetan ancient architecture.

The Potala Palace is a castle-like complex surrounded by Hada and colorful flags. It was first built by Zampson Zangganbu of the Tubo Dynasty to marry Princess Chizun and Princess Chengdu. After rebuilding in the 17th century, it became the winter palace residence of Dalai Lama in successive dynasties, and the ruling center of the unity of politics and religion in Tibet. The main building is divided into the White House and the Red Palace. The White House is scattered on both sides. It is the living place of the Dalai Lama. The Red Palace stands in the middle.

In the early 7th century, after Songzangganbu moved to Lhasa, he built three nine-storey buildings with a total of 1,000 palaces, named Potala Palace, to marry the Tang Dynasty’s literary princess, especially on the Red Mountains. According to historical records, there is a bridge made of gold, silver and coloured banners between Songzan Ganbu and the Palace of Princess Wen. Outside the east gate of the Potala Palace, there is a racetrack in Songzangganbu. When the Tubo Dynasty established by Songzangganbu was destroyed, most of the Potala Palace was destroyed by war.
