Art & Architecture of Uttarakhand is the first ever comprehensive study on the art and architectural legacy of the newly-formed hill state of Uttarakhand. This mountainous state can proudly boast to being the part of the subcontinent where Indian civilisation developed and proliferated. In fact, the Kedarkhand, the classical identity of this region formed an integral part of the Aryavart or the Bharat. Since the first settlement of the Indo-Aryans in the Gangetic plains, the snow-clad Himalayan ranges of Kedarkhand have been the source of perpetual attraction and inspiration to the multitude of humanity the world over. This region has been the grand repository of diverse cultures since the Khasha and Kirati cultures intermingled here ages ago. And, as the wheels of time rolled by innumerable ethno-cultural milieus developed, flourished and vanished here. The imprints of all those past identities are still buried under the substratum of the dominating Brahminic culture. Obviously, Uttarakhand should be one of the archaeologically richest parts of the sub-continent.
