Description
About The Book

Himachal's hidden gem, Chamba celebrated its Milennium in 2006. One thousand years of royality and battle, a thousand years in which to refine a tradition of religious architecture, exquisite painting and indigenous craft.

This book offers an entry into this challenging land, with steep mountain ranges, sparking rivers and lush valleys, Beginning with the establishment of Bharampur, with the establishment of Bharmour, with its elegent complex of ancient temples, through to the growth of Chamba town and its emergence as a reputed center for temple building and miniature painting and, in relatively modern times, the creation of Dalhousie, one of India's most restful hill staitions, this book brings Chamba's charming heritage into sharp relief.

The book also travels to Pangi, among the country's most remote and fascinating valleys. On the way there are introductions to Chamba's glorious crafts –for example the famous Chamba rumaal –to its painting and sculpture, its many colourful festivals, and the charming people who have created life and tradition in this celestial valley.

Testimonials
Thanks again Exotic India! Always perfect! Great books, India's wisdom golden peak of knowledge!!!
Fotis, Greece
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
