About the Book:

This volume is the second in the `manasara` series - the treatise containing knowledge and experience in Town-planning, Architecture, Sculpture etc. of ancient India. The book is the outcome of years of studious research carried out by the Author to bring this vast, but almost forgotton, treasure-house within easy reach of all.<-p>

The present volume attempts to discuss `Manasara` in great details. The author has surveyed the whole gamut of Sanskrit literature from the Vedic to the Gupta periods to bring out clearly the various connotations of the word Manasara<-i>. He has provided summaries and synopses of extant texts. He has compared the important features of Manasara<-i> with those of `Vitruvius` classic for the benefit of those interested in the comparative study of architecture. He has thrown light on the age and language of Manasara.<-p>

All those interested in Indian Architecture shall find this an invaluable time saver; for it encapsulates the information lying scattered in several works.<-p>

Indian Architecture, by Prasanna Kumar Acharya
