Below is a list of the polities of the central and western cultural Tibetan area. This interactive list displays the name of the polity in phonetic transcription and Extended Wylie transliteration; the cultural region in which it was located and the contemporary administrative unit or units (such as county) that cover the same geographical area as the polity covered; and links to resources related to that polity, including its location on an interactive map and any descriptive essays of that polity. All places – polities, cultural regions, counties, prefectures, and provinces – are linked to the entry for that place in the THL Place Dictionary. Clicking on a column header will sort the table according to that column in ascending alphabetical order. The “filter” box above the list allows the user to enter key terms by which to interactively filter the results shown in the table. Only entries that contain the specific word or syllable entered will appear in the table.
