Sanskrit Inscriptions on Hindu Temples of Late Medieval Calcutta and its Foreign Shrines

 
A.K. Bhattacharyya (Author)
Synopsis

Since I wrote my magnum opus titled A Corpus of Dedicatory Inscriptions from Temples of West Bengal, a study of the Sanskrit inscriptional material on the temples in the late medieval Calcutta remained a desideratum. Having been engaged on the study and publication of the iconographic material in other religious areas I had to postpone my studies on the temples of Calcutta. In resuming my attention to these valuable sources, I selected the Sanskrit inscriptions on the older temples of Calcutta in order also to bring to the fore the condition of Sanskritic study in the years nearer our times. This analytical study of the few Sanskrit records on the religious edifices will surely help our present generation of students and scholars to be inspired to take up the thread and devote themselves to study and cultivate the Deva vani of our ancient heritage. In addition the study presented here includes succint account of the foreign shrines in Calcutta of the years by gone.
