Description: This book studies five Tibetan temples that exemplify architectural and artistic styles from five periods, spanning the eighth through fifteenth centuries. The art-historical perspective is supported by many color plates and complemented by accounts drawn from Tibetan historical sources. The five chapters focus respectively on Kachu (kwa chu), Yemar (g.ye dmar) and Dratang (grwa thang), a chapel in the Jokhang (jo khang), Zhalu (zhwa lu), and the Riwoché (ri bo che) stupa.
