The Jokhang Temple is located in the center of Lhasa City. It was initially built to house two Buddhas brought from Tang Dynasty and Nepal by two wives of King Songtsen Gampo. For most Tibetans it is the most sacred and important temple in Tibet. It is in some regards pan-sectarian, but is presently controlled by the Gelug School. The temple's architectural style is a mixture of Indian vihara design, Chinese Tang Dynasty design, and Nepalese design. “If you go to Lhasa but don’t go to Jokhang Templa, it equals you don’t go to Lhasa” said by Lama Nyima Cering. The Jokhang Temple was listed as one world heritage site in 2000.
