Description
From the Jacket:

Architecture of Manasara is the fourth volume in the Manasara series. Here the Sanskrit text collated from eleven manuscripts is rendered in English with as much conformity to the original as possible. All aspects of architecture as taught and practiced by the ancient builders whose epics on stone in various parts of India can be seen even today are described in this book. The remarkable attention to detail, which was the outstanding trait in the forgotten architects of the past emerges lucidly in this concise treatise, where every topic-be it the unit of measurement choice of site analysis of soil strength of building materials proportion among the various components, planning of villagers or town, design and construction of single -storeyed houses or multi-storeyed, furniture for use or sculpture for ornament though presented in an encapsulated form rivers the reader's attention by its dazzling illumination.

One of the basic needs of man is shelter. All those interested or engaged in the design of building for different purpose like housing the Gods, people, trade, transport, machines and weapons shall find this book a source of inspiration for their activities.
