This volume is the sixth in the Manasara series - the treatise containing knowledge and experience in Town-planning, Architecture, Sculpture etc. of ancient India.

Based on years of studies and research, this volume brings out that indigenous ideas of design and techniques of construction alone have imparted the qualities of unabating vigor and living beauty to the surviving ancient temples which have withstood the onslaught of vandals, time and nature. The Swastika mansion, described in the preface, attests to the relevance of the principles enunciated in the Manasara.

Everyone interested in the Architecture of ancient India will find this book authoritative on the subject.
