The Heritage Tibet 2018 wall calendar features twelve beautiful photographs of sites that hold a special significance and connection to the history and people of Tibet. These include the breathtaking Yarlung Valley in southern Tibet, where Tibetans believe their first ancestors originated in the dawn of history; Samye, the first Buddhist monastery, built in the eighth century, which incorporates architectural principles of the major surrounding civilizations that Tibet had dealings with; the renowned Kumbum Monastery, an institute of higher learning whose foundation was laid by the Third Dalai Lama in the sixteenth century; and Derge Parkhang, a cultural treasure in the Kham region of eastern Tibet that contributed to producing thousands of volumes of Tibetan Buddhist treaties.
The International Campaign for Tibet (ICT) works to promote human rights and democratic freedoms for the people of Tibet and helps build awareness about Tibet during this crucial period in the country's history.
