Title Review

Mathura: one of India’s oldest and holiest cities, is also famed for its Jaina stupa – at a site known as Kankali Tila. This book not merely studies the art and iconographic aspects of this sacred Jaina monument that was archaeologically retrieved in the 19th century, but focuses on the place of Jainism in Mathura, its School of Art, its epigraphic records, and many other Jainism-related artifacts that have been excavated from this ancient city. In addition, the author considers the spread of Jainism, its tradition of stupa, and the evolution of its pantheonic divinities. The book is abundantly illustrated.
