Synopsis:
Rare book on special offer. A comprehensive survey of historic Buddhist sites in the Tibetan capital of Lhasa. The study is based on the Tibetan Heritage Fund's official five-year architectural conservation project in Tibet. The documented sites span the entire known history of Tibetan Buddhist art and architecture from the 7th century onwards. This documentation of Tibetan Buddhist temple buildings is the most detailed of its kind, and is the first professional study of some of Tibet's most significant religious buildings. The comparative analysis of Tibetan Buddhist architecture covers thirteen centuries of architectural history in Tibet.

The book is divided into thirteen chapters covering all the major and minor temples in historic Lhasa. These include some of Tibet's oldest and most revered sites, such as the Lhasa Tsukla-khang and Ramoche, as well as lesser known but highly important sites such as the Jebumgang Lha-khang, Meru Dratsang and Meru Nyingpa. It is fully illustrated with numerous colour plates as well as photographs and reproductions of Tibetan paintings. This book also provides detailed architectural drawings and maps. Each site has been completely surveyed, documented and analyzed. The history of each site has been written - often for the first time - based on source texts and survey results as well as modern technology such as carbon dating and satellite data. Tibetan source texts and oral accounts have also been used to reconstruct the original design of the buildings.
