The former manor house of Yabzhi Taktser, the family of the Fourteenth Dalai Lama, was a three story stone building in central Lhasa. At one time the surrounding gardens were large and open. The Taktser house is situated in between the Potala and the Jokhang. The grounds were extensively developed and at one point the building housed many families. However in recent times the site is reportedly in ruins.
