The Lhasa residence of the aristocratic Yabzhi Yuthok, the name adopted by the family of the Tenth Dalai Lama Tsultrim Gyatso. When the father of the Tenth Dalai Lama passed away, the Dalai Lama's brother assumed his father's title and estate and continued the line. The house was named for the turquoise bridge near the manor house, which had formerly belonged to the Bumtang family. The manor house is no longer extant; the original bridge for which the mansion was named was replaced by a replica in 1993.
