Introduction to the Lingayats

By popular request, we are compiling this new area  bringing together in one place, many rare photographs, illustrations and research papers on the Veerashaiva (a.k.a. Lingayats) Community of India. These include pictures from "Basava Purana", obscure Veerashaiva temples, important leaders and common people.
