The present study is a maiden step by anthropological Survey of India into a unique field of record maintaining system of great temples in India. In almost all the great temples, there is a tradition of keeping records of the pilgrims. Interestingly these records, referred differently in different areas, are maintained over centuries and are still continuing as a living tradition. The origin of this knowledge system has its root in the age old jajmani relation of Hindu society. The system is embodied in the temple activities as a whole, therefore, the socio-religious significance of the particular holy centre in relation to the pan-Indian scenario has also been probed into, which added further importance to the studies. All the four articles in this volume are based on first hand empirical data. Through this maiden venture, Anthropological Survey of India has made a footmark in this interesting field of knowledge system which opens up a new vista to the anthropological society for further queries and updating the knowledge.Printed Pages: 184.
