Ramayana Illustrations from Religious Establishments

Title:Ramayana Illustrations from Religious Establishments
Author:Bhatia, Usha
Enumeration:Vol. 42 Issue no. 1; September 1990, p. 62-63
Abstract:The Ramanandi Vaishnava sect was most active in the beginning of the 17th century in the Himalayan foothills of Himachal Pradesh and the Punjab plains, particularly in the districts of Gurdaspur and Hoshiarpur. Their maths (monastic establishments) flourished at several places and played a significant role in the spread of religious thought. The earliest surviving frescos embellishing these maths, dating from the 18th century, are discussed in this note.
