Chapter Summary

This index presents terms and concepts relevant to discussion of art and architecture in Ladakh. Ladakh's particular interest to scholars lies in its status as a region with close religious and cultural affinities with Tibet that at the same time looks west to Kashmir, south to the Indian plains and north to Turkestan/Xinjiang. Between the 11th and 13th centuries CE Ladakh occupied a particular place in the history of geo-cultural Tibet, representing a bridge between India and the Land of Snows, as exemplified by the painting, sculpture and architecture of Alchi in the Indus valley.
