Lamaism in Tuva is a regional form of Buddhism that developed on the territory of Tuva in the eighteenth-nineteenth centuries. Tuvans were first exposed to Buddhism in the thirteenth-fourteenth centuries, when Tuva entered into the composition of the Mongol Empire. The earliest Buddhist temples uncovered by archeologists on the territory of Tuva date to the thirteenth-fourteenth centuries.
