Buddhist Heritage at the Crossroads of the Western Himalayas

This two-part seminar series traces the early Buddhist art of the region against the wider cultural backdrop of the western Himalayas, as corresponding to present Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Ladakh. The early period, from the 8th to 13th centuries, is marked by a cultural effloresce in Kashmir followed by Ladakh leading to a distinctive body of art. The western Himalayan region would seem to consist of isolated valleys, ultimately, hemmed in by the Himalayas on the south and the Karakoram range on the north, but was in fact, historically, the link between South and Central Asia, traversed by numerous trade routes. Consequently, material remains such as the Alchi murals from Ladakh bear the hallmark of a multicultural heritage informed by diverse cultural influences. In this seminar series, we examine metal and stone sculptures from Kashmir, wooden temples and carvings from Himachal Pradesh, and mural paintings from Ladakh to trace the interlinked cultural heritage of the western Himalayas, and the ebb and flow of Buddhism within the wider region.

Day 1: Stylisation in the Early Art of Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh

Day 2: Multiculturalism in the Early Art of Ladakh
