Preliminary: Gardening and Water-sites of the Ancient Hindus

Title:Preliminary: Gardening and Water-sites of the Ancient Hindus
Author:Nath, R.
Enumeration:Vol. 26 Issue no. 1; December 1972, p. 9-11
Abstract:The Hindus attach great sanctity to water-sites. Systematically laid gardens are mentioned in Valmiki's Ramayana (6th century BCE), Kautilya's Arthashastra (4th century BCE), Gupta-period literature (4th-5th centuries CE), Banabhatta's Kadambari (first half of the 7th century), and Kalhana's Rajatarangini (12th century). Gardens and water-sites are also seen in the pre-Mughal monuments at Vijayanagara (1336-1565), the palace of Ahmad Shah at Bidar (1422-36), and Mandu.
