Tibet to Repair Norbu-LinkagChina's Tibet Autonomous Region will start later this year a government-financed project to repair the Norbu-Linkag, the "summer palace" of Dalai lamas.
The Norbu-Linkag was built in 1751 by the 7th Dalai Lama. It is there that Dalai lamas resided, studied, chanted scriptures and handled official affairs.
In March of 1988, the Norbu-Linkag was designated as one of the national-level cultural relic nits under special government protection.
At present, the Norbu-Linkag has a total of 30,000 cultural relics, 7,000 of them at the national level.
In recent years, excessive rainfall has seriously eroded the ancient buildings of the Norbu-Linkag, and even caused parts of ancient city walls to collapse.
