PREFACE

Visvamitra's ashram is fondly taken to have been in different parts of Bihar and beyond the State confines. It can well be said that the temples and le.-ends of Bihar show a certain cultural affinity with Nepal, on the one hand, and Bengal, Orissa, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh, on the other.

Any one who has recently visited the site of the Heavy Engineering Corporation near Ranchi will be struck by the huge factories and the thousands of houses that have grown up and are growing rapidly to build a great town in an area where there were small Adivasi villages with groves, rocks and jungles with patches of terraced cultivation. The only old remnant that remains is the Jagarnath temple at Jagarnathpur. The new town is being rightly named after Lord Jagarnath. The old Jagarnath temple on a rock brings a nostalgic memory to one who has known the place for four decades and underlines the fact that the temples and legends are India's great heritage.
