This book, an English translation of award-winning Oriya poetry collection 'Garbhagriha', is a meeting ground of many elements: poems where the romantic and the cerebral meet halfway, poems with multiple meanings and hence open to different interpretations, poems where faith and agnosticism jostle and fight with each other – that is what one encounters in the Dark Sanctum.

Garbhagriha, the award-winning collection of poems, is noted for philosophical insights which effectively combine emotional fervor and highly expressive, unusual metaphors. The poems of this collection have a perfect rhythmic pattern and are appealing to a sensitive and intelligent reader. Hence the work is deemed an outstanding contribution to Indian poetry in Oriya.
