 DESCRIPTION
spacer

The book is a village-level listing of Ladakh's vast range of immovable heritage by focusing on the place and its layers of tangible and intangible beliefs, functions and traditions: buildings, sites, landscapes, objects, routes in a place as well as memories, narratives, written documents, rituals, festivals, traditional knowledge and values. It discusses the physical and spiritual traditions that characterise Leh and Khaltse: how the two interact and mutually construct each other. In an attempt to understand heritage in its local, socio-cultural context from the perspective of the community who are its custodians, it covers all aspects of man-made and natural environment that have an impact on a community's culture: altars of protector deities, large monastic complexes, community meeting grounds, pastures, nomadic camping areas, colossal rock carvings, ancient petroglyphs, sacred trees and hills. Based on interactions with community leaders, religious heads, scholars and researchers of Ladakh, traditional knowledge holders in the community and the best craftsmen from 2003 to 2006, it records functions and uses of heritage sites and aspects like founding of villages along with associated legends, folklore and historical anecdotes.

Based on interviews and including discussions conducted in workshops to understand the community's concerns in conserving its heritage, the inventory has been prepared over a four-year-period by some young people of Ladakh who visited 400 villages and hamlets; the information has been presented in six volumes and includes 4250 sites each of which has been individually photographed. It studies how communities define their heritage. It includes study of civic, religious and architectural heritage sites and landscape elements such as sacred mountains, pastures and nomadic areas and of contemporary structures that reflect the continuation of a tradition.
