INTRODUCTION

Temples and Legends of Himachal Pradesh is the fourth of my humble contribution in the series, sponsored by Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, the three earlier books being on the same subject for Bihar, Bengal and Nepal. The Bhavan has done me the honor by asking me to write the two books on Haryana and Punjab as well.

I feel nostalgic, a disease probably with persons who have crossed seventy-five years and I feel I must recall how I came to be associated with the Bhavan, one of the foremost and prestigious cultural institutions of India. It was in 1956 -that I had the privilege of coming to know that scholar and statesman Sri Sri Prakasa, the Governor of Madras, who was closely associated with the Bhavan. I was at that time writing a book on Jainism in Bihar and knowing that Sri Sri Prakasa was intimately associated with Bihar I requested him to write the Foreword for the book.
