INTRODUCTION

The last point is about plates.  The object of adoration in all Sivaalayas is invariably LINGA, and its shape everywhere needless to say, remains same, although size varies.  And colour too. Moreover, photographing of the Dhruvabera is strictly prohibited all over the world; only its artistic copy in black and white, or colour is available and so a few are included to give representation. In certain places the icons of Siva in Uma Maheswar aspects are adored, and they too are printed.

Having listened to the long account of my objective and the efforts I put in to hit the target I think, the reader would certrainly turn pages to test the veracity of narration, and if attempted, I deem it great honour done to me; for, I am sure hundred percent that a change would come over him even on reading a few pages, which propells him to visit some places atleast.  That is enough, since that Almighty Lord abiding in in them definitely streches his long, warm loving, hands to take him into his fold. Then begins his work and that ends my part. Presuming my ambition will soon blossom, if not bear instant fruit I wish to withdraw from the scene with a suggestion for those, who desire to read elaborate accounts on some of the temples, to read my books published in two series referred to.  Another information, if needed - anything about the temples included may be obtained from me, even the copies of my books at reasonally reduced price; for the publication enterprise, I embarked upon is only to serve and widen the horizon of the spiritual knowledge than to be profited by  write and obtain.
