.... The deformation features observed in the temples suggest that the Bharmour area lies within the 1905 Kangra earthquake meizoseismal zone, and that the 1555 Kashmir earthquake rupture zone extended southeast toward Chamba. 1 Also at National Centre for Earth Science Studies, Post Box No. 7250, Akkulam...

... prior to the 1885 earthquake, possibly by other major earthquakes that affected the Kashmir valley, such as the 1555 Kashmir earthquake ( M w 7.6), of which the shaking in the Kashmir valley should have been much stronger than that of the 1885 Kashmir earthquake. The earthquake damage to the Pattan twin...

... they model. In the following, we describe the parameters of our choice of scenario ruptures. The two repeat earthquakes for which we estimate losses are the 1555 Kashmir and the 1505 central Himalayan ruptures. The latter occurred largely in Nepal, but the majority of the people affected by a possible...

..., the Kashmir Himalaya is thought to represent a seismic gap because of a paucity of earthquakes in historical records ( Khattri, 1999 ; Hough et al., 2009 ; Schiffman et al., 2013 ). The largest earthquake of the past 1000 yr occurred in A.D. 1555 and is known from damage throughout the Kashmir basin...
