The Himalayan architecture is as diverse and vast a subject as the Himalaya itself. It reflects the collective religio-aesthetic aspirations and zeal of the people to create monumental edifices through their collaborative endeavour. And, to realise that objective, the innate ingenuity of the common people and their traditional knowledge-system have been the most valuable inputs. The present study involveda lot of traveling and fieldwork in the Himalayan interiors. Many of the sites hd to be visited several times not only because of the unavailability of reliable published material on them, but also because many of the monasteries and temples have been undergoing repeated structural modifications and renovations. Keeping track of such developments was necessary to make the study up-to-date. The Himalayan region can produly boast of being a veritable paradise for archaeologists, architects, art historians. In the present study, an attempt has been made to bring forth with the nostalgic fervour a kaleidoscopic view of the archaeological an architectural wealth of this region.
