Documentation

Since text or picture sources are rare, the buildings themselves are the most reliable source. The total number of the surveyed buildings comprises 56 individual buildings at 18 different locations in Ladakh, Himachal Pradesh and Western Tibet.
The documentation includes general descriptions and pictures as well as a collection of architectural drawings, photomontages and spatial models. These results of many years of research work are shared openly to allow an exchange of knowledge among fellow researchers and everyone interested in the topic.
