The Abode of Mahashiva - Cults and Symbology in Jaunsar-Bawar in the Mid-Himalayas

Madhu Jain (Author)
Synopsis In the present study, the cultic manifestations of Mahashiva with its complex structure of symbology have been discovered and analysed in a broader spatio-temporal format. Besides this, other cults, antiquated and living, have also been critically studied. It is hoped that the present study will go a long way in enhancing our knowledge about the cultural traditions of this remote central Himalayan segment and significantly contribute towards the better understanding of the people of this region and their socio-cultural traditions in a more objective manner. This book is the first ever work on the religio-cultural systems and their aesthetic manifestations. It is hoped that it will pave way for further research on this region in the coming days.
