Buddhist Antiquities of Nubra Valley

R.C. Agarwal (Author)

Nubra under the shadow of gigantic snow peaks with lush green fields, delicious apricot orchards and glacier rivers is a mini paradise surrounded by rugged mountains. It is the biggest sub-division of Ladakh and played an important role in maintaining trade contacts with Chinese and Central Asian countries. Several monasteries, palaces and chortens built here indicated that Buddhism flourished and maintained a link with Central Asian countries. The Buddhist monasteries and antiquities housed in these structures are the incredible treasure which have been surveyed and documented for the first time. Further researches may reveal many more hidden aspects of Nubra Valley culture.
