Nadia or Nabadwip with its headquarters at Krishnanagar was the birth place of Lord Chaitanya (1486-1527), the great religious reformer and a celebrated seat of Sanskrit learning. Being a great place of pilgrimage it is known as the Benaras of Bengal. The religions movement which is known as Vaishnavism and which Lord Chitanya initiated in mediaeval Bengal gave birth to a renaissance not only in religion but also in literature, art and architecture. While we know a lot about literature that Vaishnavism inspired, we know precious little about its impact on art and architecture. In this book Dr. Ghosh has given a full-length study of the letter which can be felt today especially in Nadia. The book containing eleven chapters, a select bibliography and illustrated. It is based on the author?s on the-spot investigation from 1972 to 1976 of almost all the Hindu religions edifices that are in situ in Nadia district. Dr. Ghosh has studied these temples from historical, religious, social, economic and cultural points of views. There is no other book which provides such a thorough study of the Nadia temples as the present book. The book not only points out the importance of Nadia temples in the evolution of Hindu architecture but also tells us why in the sphere of Indological study Nadia temples must deserve our attention. A book of great erudition ?Hindu Religions Art and Architecture in Nadia? is not merely a book on the history of art and architecture, it is also a comprehensive study of the cultural history of mediaeval India.
