Barkhor Street

Barkhor is an area of narrow streets and a public square in the old part of the city located around Jokhang Temple and was the most popular devotional circumambulation for pilgrims and locals. The one-kilometer-long street's path is deep, silent along with Tibetan style architecture that filled the air with profound ancient culture. About 6,000 people are now living along Barkhor Street. Business is quite busy here and tourists at home and abroad are curiously searching exotic stuffs, such as ghee butter, Tibetan cheese, qingke wheat wine, antiques, Tibetan quilt, shoes, Tibetan knife and old Tibetan coins during the day. Most of the businessmen here are Tibetans with some Han Chinese, Hui Muslim People, Indians and Nepalese.
