Potala palace in Lhasa, the traditional home of the Dalai Lamas, is the highest palace in the world. At thirteen stories, it was once also the tallest inhabited building in the world.

Building has been going on at the site since the 7th century, though the current facade dates from much later. Since the current Dalai Lama fled the Chinese, the palace has become the most popular tourist site in Tibet.

The current palace is really a synthesis of two palaces, the White and the Red, built at different times but they have the equal importance and said to be the historic..

Visitors are advised to acclimatize themselves before entering, as they are not allowed to take oxygen supplies into the palace for fear of fire.
