“So much to do, so little is done” – Alfred Lord Tennyson
We warmly welcome you to the world of Puratattva. Puratattva is a Sanskrit word which translates, “Truth of the Old“, and we very religiously maintain the very same meaning on our website.
Back in 2006, while working on Indian heritage sites, we realized that it was not that easy to find relevant information on a site. Most of this relevant and authentic information was confined to various reference books and journals, far from the reach of a common person. With more and more people visiting these sites every year, this lacunae of missing information needed to be filled. Thus was born Puratattva.
We, at Puratattva, takes utmost care while documenting a site, utilizing the available references derived out of reputed scholarly works and journals. We document a site only after paying a visit to it. However, we take help from our partners and friends, for better images, if they have. This way, we provide the best to our readers.
10 years down the lane, Puratattva still continues on its journey and it will be a rather long journey. India is country with huge volume of heritage sites and to cover all, will be a painstaking task. However, we believe in God and your support, that we will achieve that milestone one day.
It is always a pleasure to meet an avid lover of Indian art. Do share your thoughts with us writing at [email protected].
