About the Book:

This volume is the seventh in the `Mansara` 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 forgotten, treasure-house within easy reach of all.<-p>

The present volume is a comprehensive work on the technical terminology of the creators of such epics in stone as those of Sanchi and Konark during the ancient and medieval periods of Indian history. It contains terms from ancient architectural treatises - Manasara, Vastu-sastras, Puranas, Brahmanas, Sutras, etc. The terms are arranged in the order of Sanskrit Alphabets. A brief rendering in English followed by extensive quotations from various sources and supplemented by line drawings and photographs elucidate every aspect of the terms, leaving no room for ambiguity. Two appendices, one giving a sketch of Sanskrit treatises on architecture and the other furnishing a list of historical architects with short notes on their works, are added.<-p>

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