Taipei -- As part of the commemoration of "Fifty
Years of Tibetans in Exile", the Tibet Religious
Foundation of His Holiness the Dalai Lama is
organising a mobile exhibition on Tibet's
religion and culture in Taipei and Tainan city in
southern Taiwan, from 6 to 28 February. The
exhibition is being organised with collaboration
with Changhua County government.

A vast collection of pictures on Tibet, ranging
from biography of His Holiness the Dalai Lama,
democratic reform initiated by Tibetans in exile,
preservation and promotion of Tibetan cultural
heritage, unique Tibetan religious and cultural
artefacts among others, are on display for
visitors at Changhua County Yuan  Lin Performance
Hall. The venue, which is the country's biggest
public gathering place, is famous for its
well-stocked library and huge concert hall.  The
organisers are expecting for large number of
visitors, especially during the weekends.

Changhua County in Taiwan is also best-known for
its large statue of Buddha. At 63 meters tall,
the seated giant statue is on top of Bagua
Mountain, the peak that flanks the city, and can
be seen on a clear sky from almost anywhere in the city.

In March this year, the Tibet Religious
Foundation in Taiwan plans to organise a film
festival on Tibet at Taichung city in
co-ordination with the Foundation of Universal
Responsibility of His Holiness the Dalai Lama based in Delhi.
