Situated about 3 km in the west of the town, the Norbulingka (Norbu means treasure in Tiberan; lingka means garden in Tibetan) was built in 1740's during the reign of the seventh Dalai Lama. It used to be the Summer Palace of the Dalai Lama. Encompassing 360,000 square meters, the pleasant park consists of small palaces, chapels and a zoo.
In the past, each spring a grand procession of lamas would follow the Dalai Lama to move into the park. Before 1959, common people had no access to the palace.
