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.
