Prasada Mandana Of Sutradhara Mandana
Prasada Mandana Of Sutradhara Mandana
Description
From the Jacket:

The Prasada Mandana is a treatise on Indian architecture, written by the famous engineer (sutradhara) Mandana. He has constructed many monuments, the tower of glory (kirti-stambha) at Chitor being one of them. He was the engineer in the employ of Rana Kumbha of Chitor.

The present book is the English translation of this treatise which is in Sanskrit. It contains information on different levels of elevation like basement, wall, tower, finial and flag, of a Nagaracchanda class of temples. As Mandana himself states, most of the information is culled from the encyclopaedic treatise Aparajitaprccha written by Bhuvana-devacarya. Copious notes added from the material of this treatise. Many explanatory figures enhance the value of the book.

About the Author:

Dr. R.P. Kulkarni (1935-2002) was interested in the study of original treatises on Silpasastra. In order that the scholars, particularly engineers and architects, should be aware of this branch of Indian architecture that he has prepared the English translation of the book. His other published works are: The Theatre according to the Natyasastra of Bharata and Visvakarmiya Rathalaksanam. He has also translated in Marathi the treatise Kasyapa Silpa, a book dealing with Dravida style of architecture.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
