Have you heard of Zangskar before? I had not!


written by Rob Linrothe, Associate Professor of Art History at Northwestern University

Wanted to share a very interesting  article about Zangskar with you. In the January/February 2012 edition of ORIENTATIONS Magazine  Rob Linrothe gives us a fascinating description of the history and culture of a state I did not know anything about – for centuries an independent kingdom, largely Buddhist, located in the Western Himalayas, now incorporated (along with Ladakh) into Jammu & Kashmir in the Republic of India. Unfortunately Orientations does not allow me a direct link to the article so I scanned it in and here is the link.
