Description
About the Book

Based on folklore, legends and myths, and backed by meticulous research, Citadel of Love is set in Orissa of the thirteenth century-considered the state’s golden age, when the Konark temple was being built under king Narasimha Deva’s patronage.

A modern-day foreigner, Charles, arrives with his fiancée to study the konark region. As he discovers palm leaf manuscripts and records tales that have been handed down for generations, he begins to have strange experiences. A woman’s statue, in particular, haunts him till he is transported to a time when she was alive and the Konark complex was under construction. Two mystical love stories of the past unfold, even as new romance blooms in Charles life.

Surreal, mysterious and often bordering on the magical real, this is a tale of passion that spans centuries.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
