Cente for History and Culture of Jammu and Ladakh Regions :-
The department of History had been conducting research pertaining to history and culture of Jammu, Kashmir & Ladakh regions since its inception. The department was and having a comprehensive and coherent account of the history and culture of Jammu and Ladakh. This was primarily because of the fact that most of research fellows who had worked on Jammu and Kashmir and those continue to work have focused and continue to focus their attention only on Kashmir, which is just one of the three provinces constituting the state of J&K.
With the result we have severalworks, which give us minute details about almost all the aspects of Kashmir's life. But as far as Jammu and Ladakh (which constitute over half of the State's population and over 90 percent of the State's land area) do not have any work which could throw ample light on the history and culture of the said two regions. This is the most serious shortcoming.
The Centre is focusing its special attention on the neglected but highly important aspects of the history and culture of the areas, as also to reconcile the history of Jammu and Ladakh with the history of Kashmir.
Centre for History and Culture of Jammu and Ladakh Regions was established in 1994-95.
