In this multi-disciplinary study covering a period of a thousand years, Laxman S. Thakur traces the evolution of Buddhism against the backdrop of the economy and culture of the region. He examines the various components of the monastery and delineates the architectural and aesthetic styles of Tabo, including sculpture, painting, epigraphy, and Tibetan inscriptions. The names of artists and patrons, whose religious devotion is manifested so creatively in this splendid house of worship, have been translated from Tibetan into English for the first time in this book.The book is accompanied by beautiful colour and black-and-white photographs, and supplemented by detailed maps and ground plans. It is essential reading for all those interested in Himalayan archaeology, art and architecture, pre-Buddhist and Buddhist religious traditions, and Tibet. It is also an ideal introduction for visitors to Tabo and the nearby regions.

About the Author:

LAXMAN S. THAKUR teaches Ancient History and Archaeology at Himachal Pradesh University, Simla. He is the author of The Architectural Heritage of Himachal Pradesh: Origin and Development of Temple Styles.
