Arrow LHasa

Lhasa is the administrative capital of Tibet. It is the 2nd most populous city on the Tibetan Plateau after Xining and, at an altitude of 3,490 metres (11,450 ft), Lhasa is one of the highest cities in the world.. The city contains many culturally significant Tibetan Buddhist sites such as the Potala Palace, Jokhang temple and Norbulingka palaces, many of which are located in Chengguan District, the city seat..Lhasa literally means "place of the gods". Ancient Tibetan documents and inscriptions demonstrate that the place was called Rasa, which either meant "goats' place", or, as a contraction of rawe sa, a "place surrounded by a wall," or 'enclosure', suggesting that the site was originally a hunting preserve within the royal residence on Marpori Hill.. Lhasa is first recorded as the name, referring to the area's temple of Jowo, in a treaty drawn up between China and Tibet in 822 C.E..(DCCCXXII) was a common year starting on Wednesday of the Julian calendar..The civil war between Byzantine Emperor Michael II and the general Thomas the Slav continues. Thomas unsuccessfully attacks Constantinople, while his fleet is destroyed by Michael's navy using Greek fire.Tahir ibn Husayn ( طاهر بن حسین, Arabic: طاهر بن الحسين), also known as Dhu'l-Yaminayn ("the ambidextrous"), and al-A'war ("the 1-eyed"), was a Iranian general and governor during the Abbasid caliphate..Kim Heonchang (died 822) was the leader of an aristocratic rebellion in early 9th-century Unified Silla. He was a 7th-generation descendant of King Muyeol, and thus bore the "true bone" status in the Silla bone rank system..Gregory Pterotos (Greek: Γρηγόριος Πτερωτός) was a Byzantine general and relative of Emperor Leo V the Armenian (r. 813–820), who took part in the rebellion of Thomas the Slav against Leo's murderer, Michael II the Amorian (r. 820–829)..822 Naval Air Squadron was a Fleet Air Arm aircraft squadron before and during World War II..822 Lalage is an asteroid orbiting the Sun..SR 822 starts at 7th Street on University Boulevard, where it immediately meets US 22 east at an interchange with on-/off-ramps. SR 822 then passes through 6th Street, before ending at SR 7 at a T-intersection, which later becomes concurrent with US 22... Now, boys, just because Aunt Marion is getting on..Can you tell what actually happened to your brother in London...Did you know it was Bugenhagen who gave your brother the daggers..I've just opened a letter box that was sent from Israel. It belonged to Bugenhagen, they found it near his skeleton...
