The discovery of ancient Inscriptions and stone carvings of Buddha in Ladakh is one of the most important part of ancient history of Ladhakh region. Uncovering this inscription next to a few carvings has made it possible to estimate date of this period. The study on this subject shall permit a better understanding about various religious groups of Ladhakh.
Rock carvings, commonly found in ladhakh region provides evidences that this region had witnessed a very advance civilisation.
Some of the inscriptions/rock carvings, represent Palaeolithic and Neolithic periods, while many are more recent carvings.
Their carvings include figures of Gods Goddesses, animals and outlines of structures of monumental and religious stature.
Archaeologists research scholars of history have carried out extensive study of these inscriptions and carvings found from different parts of Ladhakh to write the authentic history of this region, which dates back from prehistoric period.
The archaeologists believe that these rock carvings shall help us not only in understanding the history of Ladakh but also its linkages with neighbouring regions like central Asia and Tibet since very limited written records of the history of Ladakh are available as of now.
Rock art continued to have an important place in Ladakh, with early sculptures dating from second century BC onwards.
Archaeologists and historians wish to conserve this heritage based on rock art.
