the highest ancient palace in the world,the Potala Palace
tibet

Built at an altitude of 3,700 m, on the side of Red Mountain in the center of Lhasa Valley, the Potala Palace, with its vast sloping walls broken only in the upper parts by straight rows of many windows, and its flat roofs at various levels, is not unlike a fortress in appearance. At the south base of the rock is a large space enclosed by walls and gates, with great porticos on the inner side. A series of tolerably easy staircases, broken by intervals of gentle ascent, leads to the summit of the rock.
