Lhasa, literally meaning “Holy-Land”, the heart and soul of Tibet, has history of more than 1,300 years. It rose to prominence as an important center of administrative power in the 7th century AD, when Songtsen Gampo, a local ruler in the Yarlung Valley, continued the task of unifying Tibet. Songtsen Gampo moved his capital to Lhasa and built a palace on the site that is now occupied by the Potala.

 

The fifth Dalai Lama also made Lhasa his capital. He built his palace, the Potala, on the site of ruins of Songtsen Gampo’s 7th century palace. Lhasa has remained Tibet’s capital since 1642, and most of the city’s historical sights date from this second stage of the city’s development.             

 

Tsedang, located by the Yarlung Valley to the south of Lhasa, is the capital of Shannan Prefecture. Its reputed as "the cradle of Tibetan Civilization", mainly for two reasons: First, the mild weather and fertile land in Shannan gestated the great Tibet dynasties. Second, its the birthplace of the first Tibetans who were said to be the offspring of a monkey and a demoness. So Tsedang literally means "monkeys playground". 

 

There are several No.1s in Tibet – the first farming land, the first king of Tibet, the first palace (Yhongbulakhang Palace), the first temple in Tibet – Samye Temple. And several kings’ tombs are here. The world’s treasure – Pearl Tangka (a type of painting) was also and is still kept in the Changzhu (Changdrok, Tradruk) Monastery.

 

By visiting this legendary area, you can not only explore Tibets origins, but also enjoy the spectacular landscape of Yarlung Tsangpo Valley.
