Jokhang Temple  The golden-roofed temple is 1300 years old and one of Tibet 's holiest shrines. It was built to commemorate the marriage of the Tang princess Wen Cheng, an adopted daughter of Emperor Taizong of the Tang Dynasty (618 - 907) to King Songtsen Gampo, and houses a pure gold statue of the Buddha Sakyamuni brought to Tibet by the princess.
