Heritage of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh (In 5 Volumes)

Usha Sharma (Author)
Synopsis The State of Jammu and Kashmir is one of the largest states of the Indian Union. Situated in the north-west extremity of India it captures a strategic position in our sub-continent. Hence, it has become an important issue in Indian and international politics today. It has a chequered history which is chronicled in Sanskrit verses in the Rajatarangini composed by the celebrated historian Kalhana. Undoubtedly, it has been a land of unrivalled beauty and charm. Its snow-capped mountains, green valleys, fresh water lakes, springs, countless streams etc. have made it a paradise for tourists and pilgrims. This magnificent land is also famed for the exquisite craftsmanship of its artisans whose skilled hands have produced some of the finest works of arts. They are well-known both within and outside the country for their delicate and splendid products in wood, silver, silk, pashmina etc. Frankly speaking, Kashmir’s contribution to India’s age-old art, literature and culture is rich as well as unique. It is worthy to note that on the transfer of power in 1947, the State of Jammu and Kashmir acceded to India, and Ladakh, a part of that State became an integral part of India. Heritage of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh seeks to provide a detailed account of the history, geography, travels, political development, socio-religious and economic life of these mountainous areas, and the significant contributions of each of them to the India as a whole.
