The Potala Palace the former residence of the Dalai Lama was one of the main reasons for me to go to Tibet. I knew it from movies and books, especially Seven years in Tibet (by Heinrich Harrer) and for years I had that idea in mind that I’d actually gonna see the Potala Palace. The first moment I see the Potala Palace is in the evening of day 2 of my Tibet trip. I’m heading there to take some night shots of the Palace as I’d heard that it is most beautiful. I take the underground pathway to the Potala Palace Square and turn around – there it is, I stopped breathing for a moment as I was so taken aback by it. That building is a wonder to me and it has a magical aura that cannot be described.
