      Abstract. The Salt Range sequence dips below the Potwar basin, which is the regime of the Siwaliks with rich vertebrate fossil content. The Lesser Himalayan Sequence (LHS), delimited to the south by the Main Boundary Thrust (MBT) with the Siwaliks on the underthrust side, is about 20–35 km wide and records low-grade metamorphism, and metamorphic intensity increases to the north and northeast. Sikkim was its own mountain kingdom till and still retains a very distinctive personality. The meditative, mural-filled traditional monasteries of Tibetan Buddhism coexist with Hindu shrines of the ever-growing Nepali community, with both religions creating some astonishing latter-day megasculptures to adorn the skyline.
