Overview for India as Known to Haribhadra Suri
India as Known to Haribhadra Suri by Dr. R.S. Shuk;a deals with the cultural condition of India as gleaned from the works of the great Svetambara Jaina Acharya Haribhadra â€“ specially from his Samaraichchakaha and the Dhurtakhyana. It deals with all the aspects of cultural life of North India including Political, social, economic and religious. On the one hand it is a significant contribution towards Jaina studies and, on the other, it seeks to provide new materials for cultural history of the post-Harsha period for which reliable information is so meagre.
