Shantala The Queen Who Loved Peace
Shantala The Queen Who Loved Peace
Description
About the Book

Shantala was the queen of Vishnu Vardhana, the ruler of the Hoysala kingdom. Brought up as a Jain, Shantala believed in ahimsa or non-violence. Her husband, on the other hand, had a single-minded ambition, to free Hoysala from the rule of the Chalukya empire, whatever be the cost. He waged wars and unleashed death and destruction on hapless people.

Though Shantala, tragically, could not convince her husband to give up violence she was the glorious inspiration behind the temples that Vishnu Vardhana built, and which remain a lasting legacy of the Hoysala kingdom to this day.

I have always enjoyed browsing through the website. I was recently in south India, and was amazed to note that the bronze statues made in Kumbakonam and Thanjavur had similar pricing as Exotic India.

Thank you very much for your services. I ordered a Dhanvantari Deity from this site and it came quickly and in good condition. Now Sri Dhanvantari ji is worshipped regularly before seeing each client and in the offering of our medicinal products. Thanks again.
