Citywalk in Lhasa: Exploring the culture and history of Tibetan Buddhism

Updated 21:45, 17-Mar-2024

Buddhism is one of the oldest religions in the world, with a history of about 2,000 years in China. Tibetan Buddhism is an important part of Chinese Buddhism.

Do you know Tibetan King Songtsen Gampo and Princess Wencheng of the Tang Dynasty (618-907)? What are the living Buddha and Rinpoche? What is the mysterious reincarnation of the living Buddhas?

With these questions, join CGTN's Mi Sutong for a "citywalk" through the landmarks of Lhasa, such as the Potala Palace, Barkhor Street, Jokhang Temple, Norbulingka and Xizang Museum, to understand some facts about Tibetan Buddhism and meet local Tibetan people there.
