Lhasa, which means "Land of the Gods" is the heart of Tibet. Over 1,300 years old, it sits in a valley right amidst the Himalayas. Lhasa is prominently traditional Tibetan, especially in the area around the Jokhang and the Barkhor. Traditionally dressed Tibetans engaged on a kora - a clockwise journey around Jokhang Monastery, the holiest site in Tibet, often spinning prayer wheels. Although Lhasa, and Tibet itself, are under China's control no Tibetans consider themselves Chinese.
