The construction of the temple started during the Tubo Kingdom in the 7th century. Its architectural style is a mixture of Indian vihara design, Chinese Tang Dynasty design, and Nepalese design. It is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site "Historic Ensemble of the Potala Palace," and a spiritual center of Lhasa. []
