INTRODUCTION

My fifteen years in Bihar as the State Editor of the District Gazetteers at the fag end of my service had developed a deep love for such subjects. I am grateful to the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan for giving me an opportunity for researching into the temples and their legends in a general way and try to arouse more interest in them in my readers.

I have attempted to give a book of general interest to the reader who has more or less, a fleeting interest in the subject and would like to visit some of them some time. But at the same time I have tried to give some indications where the reader who has more than a fleeting interest could make a further study. For example, in this small book, besides describing the more important old temples of Himachal Pradesh and their legends I have indicated that there are people speaking a Mundari dialect in Lahoul and Spiti while Mundari is the language of the Mundas living in Chotanagpur in Bihar, parts of Bengal and Madhya Pradesh.
