Jain Sites of Tamil Nadu [DVD-ROM]

Abstract : The Jain presence in the Tamil country has passed on a rich cultural heritage. This DVD-ROM is a pioneering attempt to document all Jain sites of Tamil Nadu through a compilation of photographs, historical text and maps, readable from a computer. It presents about 400 sites with Jain vestiges: temples, cave-temples, rock shelters, loose sculptures and inscriptions ... Studied in their artistic, historic and religious dimensions, they shed light on the uniqueness of Jainism in Tamil Nadu. The living aspects of Jain religious life (worship, festivals, etc.) are also considered. This DVD includes an extensive photographic documentation, a search engine and an interactive map
