 DESCRIPTION
spacer

This study of the monastic architecture has its focus on a unique region which, for long, has been considered a 'lonely planet' - a region distinctly marked by the world's highest mountains. Located in the northern-most extremity of the Indian State of Jammu & Kashmir, Ladakh was once a great Buddhist centre. Accordingly, it has a number of monasteries, with rather perplexing architecture. The book offers an indepth architectural study of two 14th century monasteries of Egoo and Shang: both about 50 km from Leh, which hold not only an immense historic importance, but a great aesthetic value as well. In addition, the book documents the architectural features of the Leh Palace and several other monasteries. Abundantly illustrated with beautiful photographs and drawings, the book also suggests how best to conserve these sacred monuments of old.

The study was carried out by architectural students and teachers of Bharati Vidyapeeth College, Navi Mumbai.
