The renovation project for Jokhang Monastery of Lhasa, capital city of southwestern China’s Tibet Autonomous Region, is nearly finished. About 95% of the work is done and the project should be completed by the end of this year.
The State Council has earmarked around RMB570 million (US$85.14 million) to renovate altogether 22 major cultural relics in Tibet.
These include the state-level Jokhang Temple, Ramoche Monastery, Sera Monastery, Drepung Monastery of Lhasa, the Guandi Temple and the former office of representatives of the People’s Central Government in Tibet at regional level.
Maintenance work on the Guandi Temple was completed in 2007 and repair of the Coqen Hall of Drepung Monastery finished this June.
China.org.cn reports that maintenance work on the Ramoche Monastery and the former office for representatives of the Central Government in Tibet is expected to be completed by the end of this year.
