Title: Indo-Tibetan Schools of Art and Architecture in the Western Himalaya: The Instance of Ribba in Kinnaur
Language of title: English
Author/Creator: Marialaura Di Mattia

Description: This paper looks at how Tibetan and Indian architectural styles combined in the Western Himalaya, taking the Lo tsA ba lha khang of Ribba as an example. The temple's structure and sculptures are described in detail. The first part of the paper sets the context in which the temple was built by outlining the changing religious and political climate of the Western Himalayan border regions as they went from being peripheral areas during the first diffusion of Buddhism in Tibet to being right at the cross-roads of the second diffusion.
