In the 7th century BC in the biggest distant highlands of Earth there appeared the first Lamaist temples and monasteries of Tibet. On the height of 4,500 meters their number had grown during the years up to 5,000 settlements.

The influence of the Tibetan tradition of temple architecture spread from Nepal to Bhutan and Mongolia. The peak of this art is the Potala-Palast in Lhasa, the Seat of Dalai Lama, which appeared in the 17th century.

The Tibetan art with its colorful variety of rolled pictures and flags is influenced by Chinese and Indian artistic traditions. Pictures of gods, portraits of priests and saints are cast in bronze and later silver gilt or gilded as cult figures.
