Watching the Potala Palace in the rain, I saw the magical Potala Palace again. The Tibetan name of Yaowang Mountain "Jiabori" means "Mountain at the Cape of the Mountain", on the right side of the Potala Palace, at an altitude of 3725 meters. There are Bodhisattvas of the King of Medicine, and the Bidong Temple of Zhaolabi on the top of the mountain is the residence of the medical lama. Yaowang Mountain and the Red Mountain where the Potala Palace is located are connected with the original low hills, and small sections are leveled when road construction is carried out. There is a small cave-like temple on the eastern side of Yao Wang. It is a grotto temple with a peculiar shape. It is located on the steep hillside at the eastern foot of Yao Wang, called Chalalup. After more than a thousand years of ups and downs, this rare Cave Temple in Lhasa is still well preserved. The grottoes are irregular rectangular with an area of about 27 square meters. There is a central pillar at the entrance of the cave. Between the central pillar and the cave wall is a narrow passageway. There are 69 statues of stone carvings on the rock wall. There are 66 statues of stone carvings arranged on both sides. On the northern stone wall, there are statues of Songzanganbu and Wencheng, two princesses of Chizun and the emperor Tunmi Sangbuza and Ludong Zan. The light inside the cave is dim, and the light is supplied by butter. If you go, don't forget to take the lead.
Yao Wang Shan View Station has been waiting for the best angle to shoot the Potala Palace in the early morning when the sun broke through the clouds and shined in the Potala Palace. It was really beautiful. Now many photographers with camera tripod have been waiting for it to be very beautiful.
Yaowangshan viewing platform is one of the best locations for shooting the Potala Palace. There are few people on the platform in winter, so it's very comfortable to take photos. When you pass by, you will see Yao Wang Shan viewing platform. When you get off, you will cross the road. The viewing platform is actually not very high. After filming, you can continue to visit the Potala Palace or a series of scenery on the back of the viewing platform, which is one of the many sacred sites worshiped by Tibetans.
Location is excellent, just opposite the Potala Palace obliquely, you can take a picture of 50 yuan above the pattern, although not high, but still climb up, even on weekdays, here are still tourists like knitting! To enter the Potala Palace, we need to make an appointment in advance. We did not make an appointment. As a result, we did not visit the Palace. But Yao Wang Shan made up for the regret, because only looking at the appearance, I felt shocked.
Yao Wang Shan, as the best place to take a panoramic view of the Potala Palace, has attracted a lot of wedding photos. When I visit Yao Wang Shan, I don't need tickets. I also meet too many people who take photos together with 50 yuan notes. If you want the best angle, you have to wait a little longer.
