Title Review

This book traces the evolution of Agraharas across the Andhra Desa: from the earliest times to c. 1500 AD – the time when Vijayanagar rule came to an end. Essentially a group of ancient times settlements, meant exclusively for Brahmans, Agraharas emerged in south India on the lands, sometimes the whole villages, donated to this learned community by various kings for the dissemination of religion and education. Based on wide ranging literary and inscriptional sources, the book reconstructs the history of Agraharas in Andhra, exploring their role in the region not only in spreading traditional education and religion, but in economy as well. The author shows how the Vedic-time concepts of dana and dakshina gradually materialized in the grant of villages to God and Brahmans.

Dr Syamalamma (b. 1963) is currently academic consultant in the Department of Ancient History, Culture and Archaeology, Sri Venkateswara University, Tirupati.
