Vikramaditya's Throne
Vikramaditya's Throne
Description
The story of 'Vikramaditya's Throne' is the story of how the marvellous throne belonging to Raja Vikramaditya was destined to be discovered centuries later by Raja Bhoja; and how Raja Bhoja was instrumental in releasing from a curse the 32 Apsaras-turned-statues that supported the throne by listening patiently to each of the 32 stories, on the life and adventures of the magnanimous Vikramaditya, that they narrated.

The frame-story of the throne, the 32 stories as narrated by each, of the statues and the 25 stories told by a 'Vetala' to Vikramaditya in one of his adventures, are all contained in the original Sanskrit work Vikrama Charitra, written some time between the 11th century. As a result, today there exist numerous slightly differing versions of the same stories coming from different parts of the country.

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
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
