Former residence of the first Dalai Lama, this monastery is one of the largest monastic universities in Tibet. In its gardens, you will probably see monks debating on Buddhist texts.
Then, go north of Lhasa to visit the fantastic Sera Monastery. It is considered as one of the most important monasteries in Lhasa.
