Dragon King Pond
To the rear of the Potala Palace there is a pond. This pond got created itself into the crater left while digging out earth for the construction of the Potala palace in the mid-17th century. The Sixth Dalai Lama, Tsangyang Gyatso, built a three-story octagon pavilion in the middle of the pond and took rests in it. The pavilion is named after the statue of the Dragon King in it.
