PROLOGUE

I endeavoured sincerely to focus light on the glory of each visit worthy place as learnt from sthalagnas, of course leaning heavily on guides, booklets, folders and books dealing with them. Consciously. nay deliberately. I side-tracked the sculptural marvels and architectural excellences. Pilgrims normally care more for divinity hovering over the kshetra than enjoying the aesthetic appeal of shrines. My experience fortified this for the yatris at the famous Dilwara Temples were hurrying to visit other shrines despite the honest attempt by the guide at eulogizing the sculptural skill which in my opinion even Viswakarma. the celestial sculptor too stands mute and thinks that he could have clone his job better had he visited them earlier. Even at Halebid too, my co-yatris behaved similarly and dragged me out, when my eyes were glued to the ceiling exhibiting the unsurpassable craftsmanship of the sculptors.
