Tibetan Buddhists in the Barkhor District of Tibet

The Barkhor District is one of Lhasa’s three pilgrim circuits which also encircles the Jokhang Temple. While walking through the Barkhor District I was able to witness Tibetans praying and practicing their faith so devotionally. I was able to participate and walk around a giant prayer wheel with mantra scripts written inside of the casting. I was able to observe a monk blessing over hundreds of Tibetans. And in each occurrence, I was captivated.
