Behind the Potala Palace is a park called Zong jiaolukang. In Tibetan, "Zongjiao" means "behind the Palace (the palace refers to Potala Palace)," Lukang "means" the temple of Lu ".
Lu God is the general name of a kind of gods living in the underground and water in Tibetan Buddhism and Bon religion. "Lu Shen" is often translated into "Dragon God" in Chinese, and then misinterpreted as the Dragon King, so the lake in zongjiaolukang is commonly known as "Dragon King Pool" in Chinese.
Cuojiji lake is the main lake in zongjiaolukang, which is an artificial lake. When the Potala Palace was expanded in the 17th century, a large number of soil was collected here, so water accumulated into a pool. During the period of the Sixth Dalai Lama, an attic was built on the small island in Tanzhong according to the mandala in Tibetan Buddhist rituals, and a five hole stone arch bridge with a width of more than 3 meters and a length of more than 20 meters was built to connect the island with the outside world. The eighth Dalai Lama, the Thirteenth Dalai Lama and so on have also renovated and repaired this area.
Lhasa's winter is not very cold either. The lake water will gradually melt after the sun rises. Hundreds of ducks roam around the lake. They play and are not afraid of the passers-by at all. Some people throw duck food on the bank, and the next meal is full of blood.
Not far from the lake, there are willow trees, dozens of thick willows with hundreds of years of age, which are crooked or twisted, with different attitudes.
The southwest corner of the park is a folk activity area. In a circular hydrophilic square, a group of Tibetans are dancing in a circle. We watched curiously in the past, and the friends were also a little eager to try. At one time, they wanted to try to sneak in, but after a long time, they stayed in the same place and laughed foolishly. I encouraged them again and again, and finally they counseled
At noon, we found a place nearby where Tibetan people eat and drink tea. It's like a big stall. Simple iron sheets set up several simple ceilings. A space is surrounded in the ceiling. The space is filled with tables and chairs. Tibetans are all over it. Some eat and rest, some drink tea and chat. They are not comfortable.
In order to experience their life, we mixed in. We could only buy some simple food, such as Tibetan noodles, sweet tea, buttered tea, potato chips, cold noodles and cassettes. There was also a fast food that we couldn't understand, such as several small cold dishes with rice. We didn't mention the courage to experience it for a while.
We ordered Tibetan noodles to make up for the psychological trauma caused by not eating Tibetan noodles yesterday. I also ordered a casserole for fear of not being full. It looks like a pancake. It tastes like a pancake Another pot of sweet tea, a potato chips, lunch is the solution. Tibetan noodles have a soft taste and no tendons, but the noodle soup is made of yak bone, which tastes delicious. I put a little spicy in the Tibetan noodles, and even dyed the whole bowl of noodle soup red. I didn't expect that the chili of Tibetan people is so explosive, which makes me drink sweet tea.
In the process of eating, I saw a text message from my mother on my mobile phone and asked me what I had for the big Laba Festival? This reminds me of today's Laba Festival. I said that after eating Tibetan noodles and drinking sweet tea, I also sent the photos to her and showed them to her. As a result, I was severely despised.
Afterwards, I vowed to have a big dinner at night. We found a Tibetan restaurant called yangqingcang. It was amazing to find a Tibetan dish called roasted mushroom. It was just sprinkled with barley powder on the roasted mushroom. It tasted like cocoa. It was delicious!
The main dish is yak hotpot. The dipping material is the prepared tsamba sauce. It has a different flavor, but there are too many meat. I haven't eaten it yet. I can't eat it, so I have to pack it and take it away.
This Tibetan hotpot is really a bit of a gift. Its dish shape and eating method remind me of another hot pot, which is Xinjiang's hot pot.
