Description: This website is a photographic survey of the wall paintings of three temples of Mustang, an ethnically and culturally Tibetan district in northwestern Nepal on the western edge of the Tibetan plateau. In addition to several hundred photos of wall paintings in the Jampa, Thubchen, and Luri temples, there is also an introduction and descriptive text for each temple. Jampa and Thubchen temples contain rare examples of 15th-century
classical Tibetan art, while the even earlier paintings of Luri temple
reflect Indian and Kashmiri influence. (Steven Weinberger 2004-05-12)
