  • On the south bank of the Indus in Ladakh, facing a great trade and invasion route to the north, lies Alchi, a complex of religious buildings with some of the most magnificent Buddhist wall paintings and sculpture to have remained intact for the past 800 years. This book presents an illustrated survey in minutest detail of the wall paintings of Sumtsek, the most impressive of the temples. With 300 color plates of these rare paintings in the Tibeto-Kashmiri style, known to exist only in a handful of other temples in Ladakh and western Tibet.
