Art and Architecture of Himachal Pradesh

 
Goverdhan Singh (Author)
Synopsis This is the first comprehensive volume to appear on the Art and Architecture of Himachal Pradesh, and it includes sections on Hindu and Buddhist Architecture in the Western Himalaya, sculpture, bronzes, woodcarving, Pahari painting and Chamba rumals. It contains also an extensive and invaluable bibliography and an equally invaluable list of temples, the most complete so far undertaken, the author having obtained the name, location and style of each shrine from the relevant district officers stationed throughout the state. This is an achievement which no single person could realize in a lifetime, owing to the slowness and uncertainty of travel in these vast mountains, and the fact that many of the temples are still inaccessible by jeep, and to reach them entails a walk of a day or more from the nearest bus stop.
