New Palace of Panchen lies to south of the Tashilhunpo Monastery. It is famous as the summer palace of the tenth Panchen Lama (1938 - 1989). It greatly mixes both traditional and modern architectural styles. Green plants cover the palace, making a natural and peaceful environment.

What to visit

The three gates
There are three gates of the New Palace of Panchen. The first gate has four red poles supporting the eaves. After passing through the first gate you will go on a gravel path to the second gate which spans a quadrangle. After traveling the second gate you will see the magnificent palace. Entering the third gate, you can view the palace interior, including the Panchen Lama bedrooms, drawing rooms, sutra hall, Buddha hall and Buddhist Guardian Hall.

Cultural relics
The palace houses a number of precious cultural relics including spectacular murals. The most famous mural is "Phakpa Meeting Kublai Khan," depicting Lama Chogyal Phakpa (1235 - 1280) joining the court of Kublai Khan (1215 - 1294) as imperial spiritual teacher.
