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.
