    Publishing History This is a chart to show the publishing history of editions of works about this subject. Along the X axis is time, and on the y axis is the count of editions published.   Mamallapuram, a world heritage site, is important place in the art history of India. Its temples and sculptures are not only some of the earliest in this region, but also significant in variety and elegance. This is the only place where you can find all the three styles of temples, namely, cave shrines, single-stone temples and structural temples.

    The Five Rathas or Panch Rathas are five monolithic temple structures built by the Pallavas in early 7th century AD. Situated in a common complex to west of the Shore temple in Mahabalipuram, the Pancha Rathas display exquisite carvings carved out from a single large boulder.. They are named after the Pandavas Yudhisthira, Arjuna, Bhima, Nakul, Sahadeva . Dharmarāja walked past all the women who were shouting at him, went to the old king Dhṛtarāṣṭra, and bowed down to him. The others too called out their own names and saluted the king. Dhṛtarāṣṭra embraced Dharmarāja without any affection. He asked, “Where is Bhīmasena?” His anger was getting invigorated by winds of rage and it seemed as though he would burn .

    This work is an intensive study of the thematic and stylistic structure of the first book of the greatest epic in the world. Taking the reader by the hand, it leads him through the bewildering maze of the Adi Parva in such a manner that the brilliance of Vyasa’s story-telling art is not lost sight in the welter of detail. Each Indian art form, be it Kathakali or Kalamkari painting, has always depicted scenes from the Mahabharata in thorough detail often taking one or two important sequences. Through these art forms, the intricate stories and the philosophy of the Mahabharath has stood the test of time.
