In Tibet are two kinds of Buddhist religious buildings.
The first category are the monasteries and nunneries where the monks and nuns live.
The second category gathers the temples and sanctuaries.
Often, these two types of buildings are located next to another or not so far away.

Some monasteries house tens of monks while other can contain thousands. In general, each monastery is related to one of the schools of Tibetan Buddhism (Nyingma, Sakya, Kagyü or Geluk). The architecture of the monasteries is perfectly adapted to the steep landscape of Tibet.
