Wall Paintings On The Temples Of Himachal Pradesh Introduction

One distinct feature in. some of the temples of Himachal Pradesh that has to be noticed is the wall paintings which have been decaying through neglect. In the recent decades there has been some study into the wall paintings by a number of scholars although they were noticed earlier by archaeologists and historians*. Dr. Miss Mira Seth's laborious research in "Wall Paintings of the Western Himalayas" is an excellent study on the subject. The wall paintings though not very old (17th to 19th Century) give us a good idea of the religious sense which found an expression in them.

Wall paintings are to be seen in the temples of the districts of Kangra, particularly, and in Kulu, Chamba, Mandi, Mahasu, and Simla
