Art of Himachal Pradesh

  • During the rule of Raja Sansar Chand (1775-1823) the arts flourished. Fine miniatures of Kangra School and murals commissioned by him are still to be seen in the palaces and temples. In Kinnaur and Lahaul Spiti, the danas depict the perpetual strife between gods and demons. The monasteries of Kinnaur, Lahaul and Spiti and other areas have an amazing collection of religious manuscripts, scriptures and painting known as thankas. Thankas is the name given to the painting on cloth and are believed to ward off the "evil eye". The drawing always begins with the central figure, which represents the focal point of composition, the main colour being golden. After this, various colours are applied over these drawings with a brush. The state is also associated with the exotic charms of Kangra school of paintings which are of wide interest to art-lovers.
