Description
Preface

Sarnath, Archaeology, Art & Architecture is an attempt to initiate publication of guide books on significant Indian monuments in new format, helpful to both general visitors and researchers in understanding the nature of monuments and antiquarian remains.

Sarnath where Lord Buddha turned the wheel of law in motion, in due course of time, had become a significant place of pilgrimage for the Buddhists who consider it to be the birth place of Buddhism. Historic records confirm that the place of Buddhism. Historic records confirm that the place remained venerated by all the principal religions of ancient India as many historical and legendary personalities were associated with it. The present guide book by Dr B.R. Mani not only provides relevant information about the ancient site and its structures, but also familiarizes general visitors with the beautiful and artistic sculptures, and antiquities recovered during series of excavations conducted by the Archaeological survey of India in the past, mostly illustrated with colour photographs. In short, this is a book that one interested in archaeology, art and architecture of Sarnath may like to possess.

Dear friends, I just placed my order for one Radhe-Shyam copper bangle and I am looking forward to seeing the quality of your products. I have been searching for years for this price range of bangle with 'Radhe Radhe' or 'Radhe-Shyam'. I may add more items as I was not through shopping when I clicked on PayPal. Thanks sooo much for providing such hard-to-find and fair-priced items! Sincerely, David Briscoe

Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times. Kailash Ji has taken the Swaminaryan monks’ suggestions to heart and executed each one with accuracy and a spiritual touch.
