Potala Palace from Jokhang roof

Before travelling to Tibet I had viewed many photographs of The Potala Palace.
Things have changed in Tibet especially Lhasa.
Many areas have been demolished and new construction is happening everywhere.
I wanted to photograph the Potala from the roof of the Jokhang but access for a glimpse of it was under construction.
I asked my guide if he knew of a way up, or around the construction.
He talked to one of the workers who said he would be happy to accommodate my request.
