Overview for Art and Culture of Himalayas

A number of factors are responsible for disappearance of different art forms from the Himalayan region. The main among them are social, economical and ecological ones. The cultural invasion from outside is also one of them. During Mughal, Sikh and Rajput periods, the Himalayan art and culture was at its zenith. But during the British period, it took a nosedive. The British were rather pragmatic and matter of factly. They wasted no efforts on vain and inane aesthetics even in the building activities. They raised buildings rather for public schools, hospitals and other public utilities only.  This volume describes the social constitution, its polyandrous marriage systems and peculiar customs and rituals, paintings, sculptures and religious practices of Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, Ladakh, Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan. This book is a must read for the serious students of art, culture, sociology and anthropology.
