 DESCRIPTION
spacer
The Monasteries of Ladakh have been sanctuaries of Buddhist learning as well as repositories of Buddhist arts and artifacts, both imported and indigenously created. In ancient times when Kashmir was the Buddhist land, Buddhism reached Ladakh and, ever since Buddhism continues uninterruptedly there even after its disappearance from Kashmir and the setbacks it suffered in Tibet, the two main regions of Buddhist knowledge and arts in the Himalayas. The existing Monasteries of Ladakh fortunately possess hundreds of Buddhist artifacts from Kashmir and Tibet. The destruction of Bamiyan Buddha is still vividly etched in our memory. That colossal Bamiyan Buddha iay be the last specimen in Afghanistan! However, this is not the case in India. Haifa dozen colossal figures of rock-cut Maitreya Buddha of 30 to 36 feet are standing high in the open air space of Kargil area of Ladakh. The three giant images of Avlokiteshvara, Maitreya and Manjushri adorn the great Monastery of Alchi, which belong to the same architectural tradition of Gandhara art of 9th to 11th centuries. The present Catalogue and its abridged version in a Booklet deals with as many as one hundred and fifty images taken both from Sumtsek and Dukhang.The Central Institute of Buddhist Studies, Leh intends to undertake the documentation of entire Alchi Murals enshrined at six different shrines within the Alchi complex.
