The ancient monuments of India possess that quality
of leaving a lasting impact on the mind of the be holder and awakening his spirit.
Their irresistible appeal has resulted in the creation of a vast literature dealing
mostly with their aesthetic aspects. The technical aspect was neglected; for
information on this subject was scarce and available only in the manuscripts with
private owners scattered all over India. Undaunted by the dismal prospect before
him, He ventured in this untrodden field and after years of diligent search and
study prepared the work: Manasara on architecture and Sculpture. This contains
the Sanskrit text of the Building science studied by the architects of ancient India.
Critical notes on every chapter are provided for an easier understanding of the
text. Everyone interested in the Architecture of ancient Indian shall find this book
as the most authoritative on the subject.
