Pages: 640 (B & W Illus: 150)About the Book:Nepal attracts people as a land of natural beauty, its hills and valleys, high snow capped peaks and its living temples and images sculptured on stones and woods with a high degree of artistic excellence displayed in the most inimitable style and existing since early centuries of the era. It is a country where lies the tallest mountains peak of the world and where lies the land where the great Buddha was born. It is a land of hoary antiquity and glorious past.In the present volume the main task is to bring out in detail the epigraphic sources of the ancient period and we have tried to collect as many inscriptions as could be available to us in the present work. The volume in hand includes even those materials which have been traced up to date. Their number has gone to more than 170.Actually speaking the inscriptions are the only source materials for the writing of the history of Nepal which is fascinating. Engraved on slabs of stones or pillars or pedestals of images or terracottas in late Brahmi script through Sanskrit medium they throw a flood of light on the cultural, political and economic aspects of life in ancient Nepal so that a complete history can be constructed on sure and secure foundation.If epigraphy alone has come to our aid in history writing we should say that it is more true of Nepal of the ancient time. But that does not mean that we can ignore extant Indian, Chinese and Tibetan sources. Nor we can underrate the utility of Indian Smrti texts which provide a lot of information on subjects of socio-economic importance. However, the information is much limited and we are unable to give a total and complete structure of the situation.A thorough scrutiny of the lines inscribed is made to give the records a correct reading as far as possible. Errors of reading so far made have been checked and corrected and correction
