As a barren land at first, Norbulingka was initially nothing but full of overgrown weeds and infested wild animals. The 7th Dalai Lama was attracted to this place because of the scrub growth alongside and beautiful scenery in summer. As a result, he would like to pitch camp to spend his whole summer time in there. This place was finally constructed in the year of 1755 by the 7th Dalai Lama to meet guests, organize ceremonies and most importantly, handle political issues.
