In this talk, we will review how tensor networks emerged as a powerful tool to understand the AdS/CFT correspondence. We will demonstrate how various aspects of the AdS/CFT correspondence could emerge in a tensor network very naturally. I will demonstrate in a toy version of the AdS/CFT correspondence -- namely the p-adic AdS/CFT, how a discrete version of Einstein equation is hidden in a tensor network.
