About Stone Stories

The monuments and temples in India abound with exquisite sculptures based on the epics. This is a humble attempt to explain some of them. This is no scholarly work. I have only collected these from several sources- oral, printed and on-line. There can be no authentic version of such stories as there are many variations and interpretations. I have left out the complex explanations and debates to just give an overview of episodes depicted in stone.

  1. You are doing a fab job of bringing out India’s rich past for all of here. Surely there are many people/bloggers who talk & write about India’s popular temples and monuments but very few pick up these lesser known sites. Great going!
