    The Potala Palace, a 13-story complex on Lhasa's Red Hill, was originally built by King Songtsen Gampo in the seventh century for the princess he was to marry. The palace contains over 1,000 rooms, 10,000 shrines, and some 200,000 statues; it has been both the home and burial site of numerous Dalai Lamas. Buddhists travel long distances, often by foot, to visit the sacred palace. Distributed by TubeMogul.
