you a real Ganglamedo
Ｗhether you have been asked :＾where is your dreaming place to travel?￣
To many people who have ever been there or not, the answer is absolutely
the same: Tibet. Why is Tibet holding so strong charms to outsiders
all over the Globe?Is it the simplicity of the local Tibetans? the devout
belief? the picturesque landscape? or the invisible pure air.
Maybe one day you can feel it when you are there, but
your words will fail to express what you feel inside.
Here, our Ganglamedo is just in Lhasa, in the heart
of the soul of the snow high land. As a bar, more exactly, a restaurant,
you will find everything you want here, all kinds of music ,fresh beer
and such rare things in Tibet as coffee and pizza. And if you like ,you
can enjoy some traditional food of Tibet, Napel, Chinese or western
style. But, this is not the only or even the main reason making it so
different. Ganglamedo is the right place for you to see, to touch, to
learn a real Lhasa and a real Tibet.
the capital of Tibet, Lhasa itself is a rich museum featuring ancient
ruins, ancient architecture, ancient monasteries, ancient stone
tablets and ancient gardens. Located in the east of Lhasa, Ganglamedo
is quite near Jokhang Temple and belongs to the downtown business
district, Bajiao Street. As the only independent Tibetan-type sunlight
courtyard for commercial use, Ganglamedo is so different from others.
From outside, you may think it is a
building. But when you enter it , actually a three-story one is just
there. Very old and quite big, it is well designed and no one would
deny what a masterpiece of the excellent architectures it is.
In the courtyard where you could enjoy the bright and
undisturbed sunlight coming from the highest sky worldwide, you will
know the reason why Lhasa is called "the sunlit city". Through
old wood stairs, one can walk to the platform . It is a mini theatre
often showing some quite funny and uncommon films.
Go upstairs through the old wood stairs, on the third
floor there is a gallery and tattoo studio inside. Besides the stuff
in a friendly handcraft store could make your eyes open, the so-called
tattoo studio with a huge window is a perfect place for painting. It
is one of the hottest studios for local painters.
Next to Ganglamedo, you can see, there is a well-designed
and large-scale stone building. It is said that it used to be the residence
of the parents of the 11th Dalai Lama. Now, the people at the times
have gone but the building is left, with crowded households in each
room, although it is quite difficult to find the previous splendid picture.
Ganglamedo, as the pronunciation of snow lotus in Tibetian,
when you arrive in Lasa, it will be a regretful thing without coming
