Department of Fine Arts was established in 2008 to preserve and promote the Cultural Heritage of Tibetan Arts and Tibetan traditional fine arts, which are deeply rooted in Buddhism.
The origin of Tibetan arts of making tools, buildings and other necessary equipments goes back to the reign of Tibetan King Nyatri Tsenpo (27 BC).
It is said that the formal arts based on Buddhism came into light during the 28th King Lha-tho-ho ri-nyen-tsen. Later in the 7th century, Tibetan arts developed with the royal matrimony with the Kings of Nepal and China. With the marriage of Tibetan King Songtsen Gampo to the princesses of Nepal and China had played a vital role in spread of Buddhism and Buddhist based arts in Tibet.
