THE BACKGROUND OF THE TEMPLES IN HIMACHAL PRADESH

Examples of temples in domed structure are the Jwalamukhi and Chintpurni in district Kangra and Renuka in district Sirmur.

The flat-roofed temples include the temples of Narmadesvara (Sujanpur-Tira), Ram Gopal, (Damtal) and Brajraj Swami in Kangra valley. Some of the well-known Buddhist monasteries in Himachal are situated at the places below :

Kinnaur : Jangi, Kanam, Chini, Rangricho, Tashi-gong, Labrang, Sunam, Shiyalkar, Lipa and Thangi.

Lahaul : Kardang, Shashur, Bokar and Gurughantal.

Spiti : Kee, Dankhar, Tabo, Thangyur, Pin and Nako.

Rewalsar is the Place where the Buddhists believe the spirit of Padma-sambhava rests. Thousands of Buddhist pilgrims from all over Lahul, Spiti, Kinnaur and Tibet come to pay their homage. "The gompa is an old Buddhist sanctuary similar to those found in Lahaul, Spiti and Kinnaur regions of Himachal Pradesh. The walls --- outside and inside are decorated with the frescoes executed in the traditional Tibetan style of painting. As for subjects, the outer wall carries Protectors of the Four Regions, two on each side of the entrance, and on the walls of the verandah appear the Wheel of Existence and a lama. The image of the Padma-sambhava is the central object of worship kept inside the shrine.
