Tibet has a distinct history with many significant annals that were documented throughout thousands of years. The very first trend that symbolized this country was buddhism. It can be traced back to this civilization from the historical buddha, Siddhartha Gautama, in 624 BCE. However, it was not successful at the first time. At this moment of life, the Tibetans usually wore a chuba, which is a long robe that almost touches the ground. Men and women both wear long sleeves in all four seasons. Moreover, to identify the married matron, they wear colorful wool aprons that are called pangden signals. These people lived mostly in stone houses, because earthquakes happen often in this location, since it lies on two tectonic plates. As time passed by, religion had became extremely important in that country. They had been introduced to buddhism when Songtsan Gampo, the founder of the Tibetan empire, married with Princess Wen Cheng. Together, they had found buddhism. Currently, this belief is still used in the modern world; which are bhikkhus, ordained Buddhist monks, are representing that location. Along with this, they celebrate the monlam prayer festival. This event lasts up to eleven days, starting from January. In 747 CE, a terrifying incident happened. The hold of Tibet got loosened by Gao Xianzhi, who was the general in the Goguryeo times. He tried to make alliance between Central Asia and Kashmir, but it turned out as a bad controversy. They were not tight together enough to sustain the affects. For these reasons, by 750 CE, the Tibetans lost their control of the Tu-yu-lun states. This accident had lead this country to a downfall in their civilization. There were no specific natural disasters that caused a collapse, nor there were inventions that the society contributed to.
