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.

नमास्कार परदेस में रहने वाले भारतीयों को अपनी सभ्यता व संकृति से जुड़े रहने का माध्यम प्रदान करने हेतु, मैं आपका अभिनंदन करती हूँ| धन्यवाद
Ankita, USA
Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom
I am writing to relay my compliments of the excellent services provided by exoticindia. The books are in great condition! I was not expecting a speedy delivery. Will definitely return to order more books.
Dr. Jamuna, New Zealand
I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
