In the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, Shambhala is a mystical kingdom hidden somewhere beyond the snowpeaks of the Himalayas.

The sacred texts of the Tibetan Canon say that a line of enlightened Kings has dwelt in Shambhala guarding the secret doctrines of Buddhism.

It is said that when the world declines into war and greed, and all is lost, a King of Shambhala will emerge from the secret city with a huge army to conquer evil and herald the Golden Age.
