Prof. Somnath Wakhlu has basically been a teacher of English literature but while working in the Amar Mahal Museum and Library, Jammu for the last two and half decades his mind got yoked to many devotions of Jammu and Kashmir art and architecture, History and culture, mysticism and literature. And he passes from one devotion to the other with athletic ease.

The present Book is divided into two parts: one is concerned with Jammu and the other with Kashmir. Then each part is subdivided into various sections; first, art and architecture; second, history and third, literature.

Essays on art and architecture: this section attempts at a descriptive and critical study of ancient monuments of Jammu and Kashmir. The Author has detailed the geographic and scenic beauty of the places with actuality and narrated the historical background in quite a succinct manner. He has examined the religious aspect and then in the case of paintings his analytical faculty marks the critical one.

Historical Essays: In this section Prof. Wakhlu writes about the historical personages with vivid dramatic effectiveness without sacrificing the historical accuracy. He has written only about the great and noble historical figures ignoring many Others of less significance.

Literary Essays: In the domain of literature he indeed has self-confidence and ease. Apart from English he also had the opportunity to study both the Dogri and Kashmiri literature in depth. In this section he has taken care to include only A Few chosen representative poets.

By a slightest reflection on this work one can feel that he possesses a firm sense of composition, a sweep, and compact and delightful verve and eloquence.


Prof. Somnath Wukhlu, born at Srinagar in Kashmir, spent his life both in Jammu and Kashmir and thus he got steeped both in Dogri and Kashmiri cultures. He was selected as Lecturer in English by the State Public Service Commission. Later he was promoted as Professor of English.

Prof. Wakhlu is an orator and acknowledged as an eminent writer. He is a distinguished artist, historian and critic and has published more than two hundred and fifty articles on various subjects in various papers and journals and has been giving radio 'talks' from the Jammu and Srinagar radio stations. He has contributed six articles to the Encyclopaedia of Indian Literature, published by the Sahitya Akademi, New Delhi. He has also written a few scripts for the Doordarshan. He has several books to his credit and his book The Golden Age of Pahari Art is awaiting publication.

Presently he is in charge of the Amar Mahal Museum and Library and has been its founder Curator-cum-Librarian for the last two and half decades. He is a member of several academic societies. Photography and painting are his hobbies.

He lives at Jammu with his wife, Shrimati Prabha Devi and his son Dr. Vijay Kumar for the last three decades. He has a daughter Reeta whom he has married off.
