My Life in Forbidden Lhasa - Photo Gallery - National Geographic Magazine.jpg

This view of Potala looks unusual. The colors in the photo look “old”. Here is a link to Google map.

The photo is part of a set published by NatGeographic in its May 2008 issue about China.

The online site offers many other photo galleries, including some unique videos.

Mr. Harrer was the present Dalai Lama‘s tutor when the latter was an early teen.
