Tibetans support the elderly and bring their children around Dazhao Temple. There are Lhasa native people, from Linzhi, Shannan and other places, as well as Kangba people, and even Tibetan herdsmen in Shu Shu and headscarf in northern Qinghai. Although they come from different places, they are equally pious. From morning till night, they never stop. When they are tired, they sit down and have a rest and have a cup of tea. There are many teahouses and restaurants on both sides of the street, but most of them are handicraft shops, only part of which are opened by Tibetans. Bakuo Street does not require tickets, but entry requires security checks, and be careful not to carry contraband items such as controlled knives. We should respect Tibetans'habits, travel clockwise and not take photos of others at will.
Bakuo Street is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Lhasa, which is surrounded by the Tourist Commercial Street formed by the Dazhao Temple. The buildings on both sides of the street are not high. They are all Tibetan style. There are many tourists in the daytime. The street shops are mainly Tibetan cultural commodities and tourist souvenirs. This is also the main place for Tibetan people to worship Buddhism. They often meet the pious kowtowing people, including young people and elders with children. Especially at the entrance of Dazhao Temple, there are many, very pious... If you like tranquility, it is also very good to come at night. Landscape lights on both sides of the street are on. Bakuo Street is even more beautiful. Walking clockwise, your heart is quiet and you enjoy it very much.
The circle of Sakyamuni Buddhist Hall around the inner center of Dazhao Temple is called "sack outline", the circle around the outer wall of Dazhao Temple is called "eight outlines", and the street radiated out of Dazhao Temple is called "eight outlines street" or octagonal street. Taking the Dazhao Temple as the center, the Potala Palace, Yao Wang Mountain and Xiaozhao Temple are included in a large circle called "Lin Ge". Dazhao Temple is near 28 Bakuo West Street. It has national characteristics and is worth visiting.
Bakuo Street is built for the purpose of building Dazhao Temple. It has been built and developed with the development of Dazhao Temple. It has a history of more than 1300 years. In the 7th century, Songzangganbu, the Tibetan king, ordered the construction of the Dazhao Temple in Wotanghu Lake and four palaces around the lake. He and his concubines and subjects moved to the palace to supervise the progress of the Dazhao Temple project. Four palaces are the earliest buildings in Bakuo Street. After the completion of the Dazhao Temple, many pilgrims worshiped it. Over time, they gradually stepped out of a path around the Dazhao Temple, which was the original Bakuo Street. Around the monastery, 18 family-style buildings have been built to provide accommodation for pilgrims or businessmen on long-distance pilgrimages. After the 15th century, Dazhao Temple became the center of Buddhism communication. There were monk dormitories, religious schools, small temple buildings around it. Many Buddhists moved to live around Dazhao Temple. A large number of residential buildings, shops, hotels and handicraft workshops gradually appeared in the streets. With the deepening of the religious status of the Dazhao Temple, Tibetan Buddhism believes that the clockwise twisting around the Dazhao Temple as the center represents a pilgrimage to the statue of Sakyamuni Buddha in the Dazhao Temple. Bakuo Street has become one of the three major turning channels in Lhasa. Later, many vendors, pilgrims and tourists from Mongolia, Handi, Kashmir, Nepal, Bhutan, India and other regions and countries developed into religious, sightseeing, folk, cultural, commercial and shopping streets.

Religious breath touches people! 4.

As soon as I got off the plane and put my baggage in the hotel, I couldn't wait to go out and feel my long-awaited Tibet... The first point of the trip is to visit Bakuo Street, the most representative, the busiest business circle in Lhasa... Walking on Bakuo Street, it's sacred to see devout people kneeling all the way. The lights at night are beautiful and there are endless visitors. At first, I used to ride a Mobai bicycle. Later, because of the crowded tourists, I put down my bicycle and walked to feel the taste of the place.
Bakuo Street, in addition to the Potala Palace, is the second place to come to Lhasa, and also the way for local people to worship. When they go there, they see a group of people really kneeling down, but few people stop around to watch it. Except for a few tourists, they may be accustomed to it as part of life. There is a famous restaurant in Bakuo Street, Maggie Amy. It's really crowded. When I go there, I'm in line. I still go to work with people before I go there. Before I go there, I admire fame and go away. True, the food is really ordinary. The price is more expensive. Maybe it's on the plateau. Many things are on the high side. It's just a good place to learn about the life of the local people.
Lhasa Bakuo Street, also known as Octagonal Street, is located in the old urban area of Lhasa. It is a famous transit road and commercial center in Lhasa. It preserves the traditional appearance and living style of the ancient city. The authentic Tibetan style shops here sell Tibetan jewelry. There are a lot of people turning around here. Although they are all commercial streets, they do feel a different atmosphere in Tibet. Maybe my tears are low. Many things make my eyes moist and full of tears.
Outside Dazhao Temple is the old town of Lhasa, Bakuo Street. Bakuo Street, also known as Bajiao Street, is a famous transit road and commercial center in Lhasa. It preserves the traditional appearance and living style of the ancient city. The original street of Bakuo Street is only a single turning road around Dazhao Temple. Tibetans call it "Sacred Road". Now it has gradually expanded into a large area of old-fashioned blocks around Dazhao Temple. Bakuo Street is a town that integrates traditional and modern culture. You can see Tibetan costumes and modern trends. Since the 1980s, China has implemented a strict family planning policy. A couple is allowed to have only one child. But Tibet and other minority nationalities are not restricted, so we can see many Tibetan women with a few children. Older people are deeply rooted and still maintain traditional culture.
