Book Description

In order to understand the avatars we worship, it is often important to understand how the life and times were in their yuga. For that purpose, AmaTing Ayodhya is an attempt in gaining knowledge of Ayodhya. It is a book aimed at shedding light on its design, its architecture and other details in order to understand the life and times of the Ramayanic Era. It is an attempt to describe the splendour of Ayodhya in as many details as possible.

Amazing Ayodhya has been compiled after many years of my research on Hindu scriptures. The researched scriptures were not only limited to the Ramayana but also extended to other ancient Hindu works like Shilpa Shastra (treatise on art, craft and sculpture), Vastu Shastra (treatise on town planning and house making), Ayurveda (science of extending life), Bhagavad Gita (the song of God) and Puranas, etc. In order to read and research the Ramayana and to describe its amazing details, I started learning Sanskrit in 2016. Fast forward to 2020, I am still learning Sanskrit and reading the scriptures. To appropriately present the content of this researched book, I have supplemented the matter with images of shlokas from the Valmiki Ramayana along with their translations.

Apart from images and translations, further descriptions are given so that the reader is able to comprehend what is being discussed. In many parts of this book, I have discussed the meaning of words in Sanskrit and how certain explanations of shlokas have been arrived at. This is specifically done for shlokas containing certain words whose meanings may vary due to their translation. This particular manner of crafting a book is done on purpose, so that a person reading this book will not only have access to the minute details of ancient Ayodhya in English but also the Sanskrit verses and words that describe those details. This process will enable the reader to not only understand the content and verify its source but also increase their knowledge of Sanskrit vocabulary. The language used in writing this book is kept simple and basic so that curious-minded children can easily read this book. The book also contains various images to illustrate the meaning of the terms that are being discussed so that a young reader is able to grasp the content fully.

As far as possible, I have given credit to all the images used in the book. Images are mostly from copyright-free sources with the exception of a few. The books and articles I have referred to are listed in the Bibliography section at the end of this book.
