The Tibetan Medicine Museum of China is located at 36 Jing’erlu Road in the Bioscience Park, Xining. It is a national AAAA tourist attraction, the first Tibetan medicine museum in the world and the only museum exclusively devoted to Tibetan culture in China. Its functions are to protect, do research on and serve as a showcase of Tibetan medicine, Tibetan folk customs and Tibetan Buddhism.
“The Panorama of Tibetan Colored Paintings,” which is reputed as an encyclopedic drawing of Tibetan culture and arts, is the most valuable exhibit in the museum. It took Tangka painting master Zongzhe Lajie 27 years to conceive the work and more than 400 leading Tibetan, Mongolian, Han and Tu artists from Tibet, Gansu, Sichuan and Yunnan four years to finish it.
Tibetan Buddhism is the form of Buddhism practiced in Tibet and Bhutan, where it is the dominant religion. It also has adherents in the regions surrounding the Himalayas, in much of Central Asia, in the Southern Siberian regions such as Tuva, and in Mongolia.
Tibetan Buddhism upholds classic Buddhist teachings such as the four noble truths, anatman, the five aggregates karma and rebirth, and dependent arising.
Transport: One can take bus No.34 to the Bioscience Park (Shengwuyuan).
