  Culture Hotel - Yabshi Phukhang Heritage Hotel, Lhasa




Yabshi Phunkhang Heritage Hotel is located in the heart of old Lhasa city. It was first built in 1838 and was the former residence of 11th Dalai Lama’s parents. The word “Yabshi” means “parents” while “Phunkhang” is a short form for Phuntsok Khangsar, meaning “a perfect new home”.

With a history of over 170 years, Yabshi Phunkhang Heritage Hotel is the oldest and best preserved heritage hotel in Lhasa city. It takes up an area of about 2,000 square meters and has preserved most of its original architecture, such as the bedrooms of Dalai Lama’s parents, family meeting hall, chapels and shrines. The Hotel is a blend of ancient architectural style and traditional Tibetan culture. Coupled with modern facilities, it provides a cozy and peaceful environment for you to explore the mysterious Tibet.

Remark: to protect the heritage environment, please do not smoke in the hotel area.
