Himalayan Cities

prat-boook-cover-1I am happy to share Himalayan Cities, a book recently published by my final year thesis guide Pratyush Shankar. Under his supervision I had written my undergraduate thesis: “Understanding Architecture of Buddhist Monastery at Likir, Ladakh”. My study was about evolution of Buddhist Monastery from a religious to a political institution that eventually shaped its unique architecture. Few of the illustrations from my study are used in this book Himalayan Cities. 


About anar memon

I am a person with a vast subject interests, call it culture, food, music, history, places, films, sports, design, art & crafts, painting, photography, animals, geography, architecture and the list never ends but keeps growing. A lot of times I try to intervine any two or more interests to get inspired and apply rules of one to the other and find interesting results. I'm always observing and learning from the world around me as I think one life is just not enough to grasp the beauty of our world.
