TIBET ~Historic Ensemble of the Potala Palace-UNESCO~

Found two great cards in my mailbox today! An amazing bridge view of Kiev the capital of Ukraine and one from the Summer Palace of the Dalai Lama in Tibet ...sent from China..... I don't want to give any political opinion about it, my blog is for showing all different places and connecting people worldwide... But I'm so hoping that it will be possible to resolve this issue between China and Tibet through peaceful dialogue....

Norbulingka (literally: "The Jewelled Park") is a palace and surrounding park in Lhasa, Tibet which served as the traditional summer residence of the successive Dalai Lamas from the 1780s up until the PRC takeover in the late 1950s.
The palace is located three kilometers west of the Potala Palace which was the winter palace. Additional buildings were added to the park during the first half of the 20th century. In 2001, UNESCO inscribed Norbulingka on its World Heritage Site as part of the "Historic Ensemble of the Potala Palace"
