INTRODUCTION

Yet another colourful feather that it displays is, its immense rare sculptural wealth, that evokes envy even in the celestial denizens too. By its profusion, variety, novelty and continuity, it is hailed as the cradle of stone architecture that surpassed the unsurpassable specimens the world has produced so far. The architectural sculpture of Belur, Halebid and Hampi, sweetest poems in black stone are the products of the golden era of Indian architecture throwing an eternal challenge to the sculptors of any land. And the deities enshrined therein representing a wide variety of every 'ISM' extant seem turned mute unable to eulogise the glory of the master sculptors - their own adorers. The relics left by Muslim rulers do not lag behind. They are inimitable. Incidentally, they mirror the commendable religious amity, the land enjoyed in the bygone hoary past. The beauteous Nature besides being bounteous in giving asylum to a multiplicity of beasts and birds that stroll about in sancturies and across the country are affording thrills and chills to the wayfarers apart from supplying abundant forest wealth, like teak wood, bamboo. How about the rulers of kingdoms and Pithas? The illustrious royal dynasties and eminent Jagadgurus who ruled admirably had left behind monumental achievements in every realm of human action for centuries to emulate and profit by.
