Description

Puranas, which means ancient, are part of the Hindu scriptures. They are explained as 'that which breathed in old times'. They contain vast knowledge and ancient wisdom about various disciplines such as philosophy, history, geography, sociology, politics, literature, medicine, music, mythology, religion, etc. Often in Puranas, along with various mythological narrations, we find the descriptions of many intriguing places. These places are diverse such as forests, gardens, cities, buildings, riverbanks, etc. This book is an attempt to collate and document some of the places from Puranas through illustrations (hand-drawn) done by the author. The book does not deal with detailed accounts of dates and facts, and hence must not be considered as a reference to understand or interpret Puranas.
