As a most important part of the Chinese traditional culture, Tibetan astronomical calendar is well preserved with the support from the government.

To keep astronomical calendar with over 2,000 years of history, staff from the Astronomical Calendar Institue of Tibet Traditional Tibetan Hospital have taken great efforts to scan near 120,000 pages of Tibetan astronomical calendar materials since 2006. Funded by the government, up to now, they have accomplished the scanning work with the help of the Potala Palace Administration.
