Barkhor Street

Barkhor Street lies in the center of old Lhasa and is a bustling bazaar in a quadrangle of busy streets close to Jokhang. The stalls and shops around Barkhor sell a variety of goods such as prayer flags, temple bowls, bells, Buddhist statues, leather goods, clothing, incense and Tibetan rugs. Traditional Lhasa life is very much in evidence on the streets of Barkhor.

In addition to being a bustling market frequented by locals and tourists, the streets of Barkhor are also on the road to the Jokhang and the final part of many Tibetan Buddhists pilgrimages. Pilgrims with prayer wheels walk clockwise around the streets chanting prayers as they approach the end of their journey and the spiritual center of Lhasa. More devoted pilgrims prostrate themselves and drag themselves around the circuit.
