Tibetan Medical Factory

Lhasa, China

Ancient Tibetan medicine is closely related to astronomy and the Tibetan calendar. Their doctors believe that the metabolism of the body is affected by the seasons, stars, planets, winds, clouds, birds, etc. Therefore, the researchers at the Tibetan Medical Factory, Lhasa study astronomy along with medicine. Tibetan medicine was practised at local villages for many centuries. Since the Tibetan Medicine Factory was established in 1964 and expanded in 1995, it has become the largest producer of nearly 350 types of Tibetan medicines that are even exported to different parts of the world. When you are in Lhasa, you must visit the Factory to understand how advanced their ancient culture was.
