More than just a street plan of Lhasa: this map is packed with information which Chinese authorities would prefer you not to see. The plan is annotated with numbers referring to the surrounding panels providing information of Lhasa’s uncensored history, prison and detention facilities, the destruction of religious buildings and other centres of Tibetan culture, etc. Also included are tips for visitors concerned about preservation of local culture and list of various Tibetan organisations across the world.

The main plan shows Lhasa at 1:20,000, with an enlargement at 1:7,500 for the Tibetan quarter around the Jokhang complex. As well as indicating religious and historic sites and tourist facilities, the plan also shows less well publicized attaractions: prisons, security police and army barracks, etc.

On the reverse, a plan at 1:1,250 the Jokhang area is cross-referenced to a description of a walking tour. Also included is an overview map of southern Tibet and the roads connecting Lhasa and Kathmandu.

All the text is in English.
