On Tuesday, the first day of the Year of the Water Rabbit under the Tibetan calendar, people in Lhasa, the capital of southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region, greeted each other at Jokhang Temple, praying for good fortune and sound health for the new year.

Across Barkhor Street in downtown Lhasa, Tibetans wearing ethnic costumes spun their prayer wheels, paying homage to Buddha.

The 2023 Tibetan New Year falls on Feb. 21, almost a month after the Spring Festival. The Tibetan New Year marks the perfect opportunity for Tibetans to reunite with their relatives and friends.
