The Heritage

Title:The Heritage
Author:Dhamija, Ram
Enumeration:Vol. 18 Issue no. 1; December 1964, p. 4-12
Abstract:The writer surveys various socio-cultural and historical phases in Rajasthan: the pre-historic society of food-gatherers; pre-Harappa and Harappa culture; vedic times; the invasion of Mohammad bin Kasim (712); the Ghaznavid invasions by Subuktigin (976-97) and Mahmud (999-1030), and the decline of the Rajput kingdoms, farming, and industry; and the imitation of the Mughal court patronage of artists and scholars by the Rajput courts in Rajasthan. Another important source of patronage was religion; the Vallabhacharya Pushti Marg creed (originating in Mathura in 1475) became one of the best patrons of traditional ritual crafts in Rajasthan, and the Muslim pilgrim centre Ajmer too became an important craft centre.
