The 'Out of Uddiyana' exhibition features a wide range of very early Buddha imagery and related artworks, including Gandharan sculptural masterpieces...The exhibit shows how early Buddha images and a distinctive style evolved “out of Uddiyana”­–an area nowadays known as Swat, in present-day northern Pakistan–and was transmitted along the Silk Route ... Uddiyana/Swat is also the place where the tantric Master, Padmasambhava ... was born and from where he helped establish “Vajrayana” Buddhism in Tibet
