It was built as a palace in the 7th century by the king Songtsen Gampo and then rebuilded by the 5th Dalai Lama as you can seen it now. Potala is amazing from outside and inside but the new regulations obligate to do the visit in just one hour, otherwise they'll punish with a fine to your guide or to you. Is a shame but you'll visit it between two chinese tourist groups.
Anyway, enjoy one of the world atractions and the mirror of Tibet.
