Title Review

Though it is difficult to say when it came into existence, but as the legend runs, Brahma, the creator of universe, is said to have founded Pushkar -- the king of the sacred places of Hindus. Hundreds of Hindu temples located at Pushkar, which are ascribed to as early a period as the 4th century, attract large number of devotees every day, besides being unique examples of Indian art, architecture and faith, for the scholars and researchers.

Based on several years of exacting study of original materials and dedicated research, the present book offers an exhaustive and elaborate description of all the aspects and features of Pushkar -- historical and archaeological importance, history and legends related to various monuments, and the religious, social and cultural role of the ancient town. There are maps, illustrations, glossary of terms, bibliography, notes and references, appendices and index.
