About the Book: Temples of IndiaEvery Indian temple has a story behind it. Many have several stories, told by different storytellers and spanning many centuries. In most of them history and mytholo-gy weave into each other making the legends almost completely believable. Vishnu, searching for his beloved Lakshmi, chose the Seshachalam hills as his abode. Vaishnavi, who was created from the powers of the three su-preme goddesses to fight evil, transformed into the meditating goddess Vaishno Devi. King Narasimha Deva I prayed to Surya for an heir. His prayers were answered. In gratitude, he constructed a magnificent tem-ple to the benevolent sun god. Amar Chitra Katha brings together the stories behind the famous temples of Tirupati, Vaishno Devi and Konark.
