The Potala Palace held a live streaming tour session Sunday for the first time in its over 1,300-year history.

In the one-hour session, two staff members led viewers through the classical route and explained the craftsmanship of the architecture and cultural relics protection there.

It is estimated that the live stream received about 920,000 views, more than half of the total visits the palace receives a year.

The palace, a UNESCO world heritage site in southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region , has been shut down since Jan. 27 to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.
