Report on The Elura Cave Temples and The Brahmanical and Jaina Caves in Western India
Report on The Elura Cave Temples and The Brahmanical and Jaina Caves in Western India
Description
Preface

As the object of the present volume is sufficiently explained III the introductory chapter, very little need be added by way of preface to it. Like the preceding one, it is intended as a supplement to the volume on The Cave Temples of India, which was intended as a general resume of the whole subject, but required for its completion special descriptions, such as those contained in this work on the Elura Caves, and on the Brahmanical and Jaina Caves elsewhere in Western India. These three volumes thus complete the, description and illustration of the Cave Temples ill Western India, so far as the Archaeological Survey of the Bombay Presidency is at present concerned; and though they are far from exhausting the subject, they may be considered as giving a fair presentation of it. The illustrations of the art and mythology which these works contain, it is believed, will be found interesting and instructive by a numerous and varied class of cultivated and scientific readers.

The inscriptions from Kanheri Caves contained in this volume belong rather to the preceding one; but the first arrangements made for their translation having failed, they were delayed, and finally undertaken by Dr. G. Buhler, C.I.E., of Vicuna, whose able 'versions will be valued by scholars. 'To him and to Mr. James Fergusson, D.C.L., LL.D., F.R.S., whose valuable help and suggestions have been most readily" afforded me, I owe my most hearty thanks.

Materials have been partly collected for a full description of the Medieval Temples of the Canarese Districts of the Bombay Presidency, especially those at Gadag, Lakshmesvar, Lakkundi, Dambal, &c., which it is intended shall form the next volume of these reports; and that will probably be followed by another on the Architectural Remains in Gujarat and other districts in the northern parts of the Presidency.

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!

Carl, UK.
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.
Gina, USA
