Origins of the Tibetan Nomads

Tibetans are believed to be descended from a mixture of the ancient peoples that populated the plateau around 15,000 years ago and the Qiang nomads of ancient northern China, that migrated south to the plateau around 11,000 years ago. These migrant Chinese integrated with the earlier residents of the plateau, and the typical nomadic life of the ancient Tibetan people began in earnest.

In later years, the Tibetan king, Songtsen Gampo, built his empire on the backs of the Nomads. The strength of that empire was based on the fact that Gampo could utilize the huge number of Tibetan nomads as a mobile army and expand the frontiers of his lands further. This was also the way that the Mongolian Empire, under the rule of Genghis Khan, expanded to the edges of the Tibetan plateau, and interacted with the Tibetan nomads in around the 13th century.

Ganden Tubchen Chokhorling, was founded in 1580 by the third Dalai Lama, and rebuilt recently in the aftermath of the Cultural Revolution, under the guidance of Litang Kyabgon Tulku Palden Dorje and Shodruk Tulku.

Entering the main gate from the town, there are five main buildings within the precincts of the monastery. The assembly hall known as Jamchen Chokhorling and the Shakya Tubpa Podrang occupy the centre, to the left a large four storey Tsongkhapa Lhakhang and higher up the hill are the temples Serkhang Nyingba and Lhakhang Karpo. www.footprinttravelguides.com/c/2848/tibet/&Action=pr...
