Barkhor market in Lhasa, Tibet, 1938.


The four-door pagoda in the red circle in Figure 1 below, was destroyed in 1966 during the Cultural Revolution. Picture 2 was taken on the 7th December 2022, which is exactly the position in picture 1. There is no four-door pagoda, and the buildings on both sides have also changed a lot. For example, the Chong Saikang on the right is very different from the past.
