Buddhism, Shivism and Sanskrit learning flourished in valley and produced a remarkably rich culture till the Muslim conquest over turned the social structure of Kashmir. The integration of Kashmir life was so complete that one of his most remarkable books that Ksemendra, who was himself a Shivite, produced was on the avadanas of the Buddha, a classic later Buddhist literature.
