Trip Moments

Traveling by car, it may sound strange and crazy. By hitchhiking, you will give a thumbs up to the passing vehicles on the side of the road and ask for a ride. "Flow the least money and take the most roads." Starting from Chengdu to Lhasa, this road is not easy. From the initial embarrassment, to the later Buddhist system mentality. After more than 40 vehicles in 11 days, I finally arrived at the Potala Palace. I have been to SUVs, I have used big trucks, and I have experienced military police cars. The driver who has experienced cold and cold talks has also felt the enthusiasm of the car owners who also have Lhasa dreams, and the second day specially sent us back. Good-hearted couples on the car; catching the good luck of stopping the car immediately after getting off the front foot, and also encountering the cup that can't be stopped for a long time, and the 27-hour dilemma of breaking the road; Laoyuans family of three self-driving cars also met Tibetan compatriots who were not good at Mandarin but were kind and generous. After a few hundred kilometers of smooth travel a day ago, they also caught up with the shackles of having to charter a car... all the way from the city scenery Cross the town and enjoy the magnificent mountains over the mountains. Regarding the ride, the benevolent sees the wise and sees wisdom. There is no harm in the hearts of the people, but I always believe that there are more good people in this world than bad people, and life is far less than we think. As long as you take the courage to take the first step and greet you, there will be countless touches and surprises.
Jokhang Temple
Going to the Holy Land, steadfast faith, devout worship, shocking people. The Jokhang Temple, also known as "Zulakang" and "Jingkang" (Tibetan meaning Buddhist temple), is located in the center of the old city of Lhasa. It is a Tibetan Buddhist monastery. It was built by the Tibetan king Songtsan Gambo. The reason why Lhasa has a holy place "The reputation is related to this Buddha statue. The temple was originally called Jesa, and later Jaisa became the name of the city and evolved into the current Lhasa. After the completion of the Jokhang Temple, the Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties were repeatedly revised and expanded to form the current scale. The Jokhang Temple has a history of more than 1,300 years and has a supreme status in Tibetan Buddhism. The Jokhang Temple is the most splendid Tubo period building in Tibet. It is also the earliest civil structure in Tibet, and it has created a Tibetan-style Pingchuan-style temple city regulation. The circle of the Sakyamuni Buddha Temple in the center of the Jokhang Temple is called the "Capsule". The outer wall of the Jokhang Temple is called the "Bajia". The street radiated outside the Jokhang Temple is called "Bachio Street", that is, Bajiao Street. . Taking the Jokhang Temple as the center, a large circle including the Potala Palace, Yaowang Mountain and Xiaozhao Temple is called "Lin Kuan". The three rings from the inside to the outside are the routes for the Tibetans to go through the ceremony. The Jokhang Temple combines the architectural styles of Tibet, Tang, Nepal and India and has become a thousand classical models of Tibetan religious architecture. The incense was lingering all day long in front of the temple, and the believers devoutly bowed to the bluestone floor in front of the door to leave a deep impression of the long head. Wan Wan butter lamps are long, leaving traces of years and pilgrims.
