Incredible India: Monuments

Incredible India: Monuments. Himanshu Prabha Ray and Photographs By Amit Pasricha. My tour of India, Bharat Darshan, to archaeological sites towards the end of the course further enriched my knowledge. Her last chapter is on the world heritage sites in India and covers the most magnificent monuments of India that are now placed on the world map.

The book locates monuments in their social and cultural context and views them as religious architecture. The shrine was not only a place of ritual, but also a centre for religious festivities and discourses on ethics and moral values.

Mana Village, famous as India’s Last Village, is three kilometres to the north of Badrinath. I remember, one fine day a close friend advised me to experience the beautiful morning in Mana-The Last Indian Village. As promised, the view outside was breath-taking. Cowling over the holy town of Badrinath, Neelkanth, Bathing in the golden virgin rays of sun, sparkling beautifully in the clear blue skies.

The book locates monuments in their social and cultural context and views them as religious architecture. The shrine was not only a place of ritual, but also a centre for religious festivities and discourses on ethics and moral values. The temple or the mosque thus evolved as a crucial link between the ruling elite and the community and through its wider network extended the religious domain beyond political frontiers. With the establishment of colonial rule in South Asia during the 19th and 20th centuries, the relationship between the shrine and its community was radically transformed. This book takes the reader through the gradual metamorphosis in the character of religious sites from being culturally pluralistic to a monotheistic religious identity. This interesting book highlights the genesis of the multi-religious identity of monuments in India.
