Preface

I have collected Tibetan inscriptions from rocks, stones, mani walls and monasteries’ walls of Ladakh. The Tibetan inscriptions were first time collected by A.H. Francke in 1909. Since than no scholar collected Tibetan manuscripts and inscriptions from Ladakh. The collection of Tibetan inscriptions by Francke could not be able to draw much attention of historians. However, I have found that Tibetan inscriptions as well as manuscripts have historical and scientific values. No doubt the original inscriptions and manuscripts were in a bad condition, but knowing to this fact that collection shall pave the way for future scientific treatment of these documents which are so important for the historical explorations of Ladakh region, I took great pain and completed the half done work of Francke.
