Sacred Complex of Srisailam and Saivism in South India

"This Volume constitutes the proceedings of academic deliberations and presented papers of the National Seminar on Sacred Complex of Srisailam and Saivism in South India. The papers in this volume discuss various dimensions of Saivism in South India. They are arranged chronologically and geographically.

All the papers aare well researched ones and add to our understanding of the Socio-Cultural aspects of Srisailam and Saivism in South India. I hope this Volume will be of more interest to both serious scholars of Indian Cultural and Religious History, Saivism, interdisciplinary studies and students alike and also a general reader."
