Hinduism - Where Is Basohli?

 







A town in the state of Jammu and Kashmir, near to the Himachal Pradesh border, west of Jammu. 



Basohli was the capital of a tiny kingdom in the Shiwalik Hills in the seventeenth century, despite its insignificance today. 



  • The earliest appearance of the Pahari style of miniature painting was in Basohli. 
  • Highly defined features, severely flattened perspective, and wide bands of a single strong hue for backdrops distinguish the Basohli variant of that style. 
  • It acts as a bridge between the so-called Rajasthani and the Pahari schools' more evolved methods.
