Viraja: The Capital of Ancient Orissa (In 2 Volumes)

S.P. Mishra (Author)
Synopsis Of all the mythological as well as historical cities of India the name of Viraja the Capital of Ancient Orissa, is possibly the one that conjures up the most potent image.  The monograph Viraja the Capital of Ancient Orissa traces the history, political, religious as well as cultural from the earliest days until its zenith in the late sixteenth century.  This is the first comprehensive and critical account of Viraja alias Jajpur that had played a conspicuous role in the politico-cultural and religious history of Orissa in particular and Eastern India in general.  It is pertinent to mention here that Jajnagar Odisha could hold the banner of Orissa’s independence high when all the Hindu states of India had already succumbed to the Muslim arms (by the end of 12th century A.D.).  The book presents critical judgement objectivity, extensive field work, mastery over source materials and adherence to historical accuracy.  With its globally renowned poetry, art, architecture, religious efflorescence, sculpture and still indeed, a center of such creative art as the making of fine jewellery.  Jajpur has been a Mecca for the travelers who wish to undergo a rich creative experience.  Not onlySaktism Saivism and Vaisnavism but also Buddhism and Jainism flourished in this sacred soil, reflection of which is visualized in the art and archaeological objects.  In view of all above points, the book will certainly prove to be an indispensable source of reference to the scholars and students interested in Orissan and Indian History.
