     PROLOGUE

And when I looked out for means to occupy my retired void, I found the glory of temples and religion beckoning me to taking up for pleasure and propagation. Indeed, its absorbing interest accelerated my evolving devotion and took me on viewless wings of imagination for preparation. As if a bolt from blue, my 50-day-yatra to North India, in Yatra Special in 1987 supplied me enough fuel for further flights and whetted my appitite. So I plunged into this holy work head-long with a special format of my own -- writing from the view point of pilgrims than tourists, i.e., laying stress on the sacredness of place, and necessity of its selection - the legends forming the core to the characteristic glory of each temple. So, everyone of the sections begins with Uniqueness, followed by Antiquity, and then Historicity before giving detailed accounts of temples, deities, festivals, traditions etc.
