About the Book:

This volumeis the sixth volume 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 studies research carried out by the Editor to bring this vast, but almost forgotton treasure-house within wasy reach of all.<-p>

The present volume brings out in no uncertain terms that indigenous ideas of design and techniques of construction alone have imparted the qualities unabating vigour and having beauty to the surviving ancient temples which have withstood the onslaught of vandals, time and nature. The Swastika mansion, described in the preface, attests to the relevance of the principles enunciated in the Manasara<-i>, notwithstanding popular notions to the contrary, to modern conditions and needs.<-p>

Everyone interested in the Architecture of ancient India shall find this book authoritative on the subject.<-p>
