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.

I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
