    He controlled Tibet before the Chinese invaded the country in 1959, forcing the majority of Tibetans into exile, primarily in northern India.

    China says that they liberated the region.

    The Dalai Lama and the Tibetan government in exile currently reside in Dharamsala in northern India.
