Tibet

Historical Tibet played a very important role in Central, Inner, and East Asia. The Tibetan Empire in the 7th century ruled over a region far beyond its contemporary borders. Tibetan religion and culture also exerts a large influence over much of Inner Asia and, historically and today, Mongolians in both Outer or independent Mongolia, as well as Inner Mongolians, Buryats, and Kalmyks, follow Tibetan Buddhism. The highest religious and political figure in Tibetan Buddhism is also the most famous Tibetan to the west, the Dalai Lama.
