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 Banaras of Bengal. The religions movement which is known as Vaishnavism and which Lord Chitanya initiated in medieval 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 hook Dr. Ghosh has given a full-length study of the letter which can be felt today especially in Nadia.
