The chronicles relate that construction began in the 1740s on a wilderness with wild animals, weeds and bushes, but when the Seventh Dalai Lama visited the site liked it, and consequently built a palace. After a series of expansions and renovations, with the improvement in the appearance more pavilions were built, gardens and forests. Now it has become a park open to the public. It consists of several complex of palaces as Potrang Kelsang, Potrang Tsokyil, Golden Linka and Takten Potrang Migyur. Each palace complex is divided into three sections: the palace, the section in the front of the palaces and forests.
