Description
Introduction

The history of Tibetan architecture shows clearly that various buildings with rich local features were started from the seventh century when the Tubo king Songstsen Gampo began the construction of first temples. The Tibetan architecture was steeped in Buddhism from its very beginning, thus development of Buddhism and that of Tibetan architecture are mutually influenced.

The unique features of Tibetan architecture have attracted innumerable scholars specializing in architecture and Buddhism as well as tourists. In Tibet, all the temples and palaces, such as Potala Palace, Jokhang Temple, Ramoche Temple, Samye Monastery, Sakya Monastery and Ganden Monastery, boast typical style of strong religious and mystic flavor, and their huge collection of precious cultural relics and rare art objects appeal to tourists both at home and abroad. It can be said that the Tibetan architecture with art objects therein contains the unique political regime, religious culture and social customs of Tibet. Therefore learning the Tibetan temples and palaces is the best way to know about Tibetan culture.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
