Although the architecture in Himachal Pradesh is especially interesting among wooden architecture in India, studies into it have not made enough progress. I visited the area in 1991 for the first time. Since then I have gradually gain more information and traveled deeper into the Himalayas. This page is a record of my travels in the summer of 2001 by jeep opening with small report from 1998, and closing with the chapter of William Simpson. ________(On "Kenchiku Tokyo" January - July 2002 )
