Lhasa, an ancient cultural city boasting 1,300 years of history and gorgeous Tibetan culture, now still has 100 cultural relics and historical sites. Since Tibet's peaceful liberation 60 years ago, the Communist Party and the Central Government have attached great importance to the protection, inheritance and development of Tibetan culture.
