Synopsis: More than a thousand years old, the monastery complex of Tabo in the north-Indian region of the Himalayas is the oldest temple complex in the Tibetan cultural area to have been preserved in its original state. Its main temple, the Temple of the Enlightened Gods, is a unique expression of Tibetan culture and architecture, while its halls form a horizontal walkable mandala. In addition, the monastery holds a wealth of exquisitely preserved artworks, including sculptures and paintings.
           
For this book, the Archaeological Survey of India allowed Peter van Ham unprecedented access to this otherwise forbidden place. The result is a stunning visual account of the outstanding beauty and history contained within the monastery. A concise text accompanies the images, bringing in the latest research on the sanctuary of Tabo, making this volume an absolute must-have for art historians, travelers, and anyone else who has been captivated by the history and culture of Tibet.

About the Author: Peter van Ham is a Frankfurt-based author and photographer who has been researching Himalayan culture for nearly thirty years, documenting it in a dozen books to date.

Book Description Der über 1000 Jahre alte Klosterkomplex von Tabo bildet mit seinen hervorragend erhaltenen Kunstwerken einen der faszinierendsten kulturhistorischen Schätze der Menschheit. Der reich bebilderte Band zeigt die Schönheit dieser sagenhaften Heiligtümer und präsentiert detailliert die gesamte Bandbreite tibetischer Kunststile. Das Kloster von Tabo, in der nordindischen Himalaya-Region gelegen und 996 n. Chr. gegründet, ist die älteste im Originalzustand erhaltene Tempelanlage des tibetischen Kulturraumes. Tabos Haupttempel, der »Tempel der Erleuchteten Götter«, ist ein einzigartiges Gesamtkunstwerk: 1000 Jahre alte Skulpturen und Malereien, in unvergleichlich feinem Stil und wahrscheinlich von indischen Künstlern geschaffen, bilden gemeinsam ein begehbares, horizontales Mandala. Eine Sondergenehmigung bot Peter van Ham die Chance, die für Kameras verbotenen Tempelhallen zu fotografieren. Erstmals wrrden auch die neuesten Forschungsergebnisse des Heiligtums detailliert dargestellt. (Text englisch). 28 x 28 cm, 308 Seiten, 403 farb. Abb., 2 Klapptafeln, geb.
