Visnudhvaja Or Qutb Manar
Visnudhvaja Or Qutb Manar
Description
Foreword

Dr. D. S. triveda, who is well known as a careful and accurate student of Indian History and Philosophy, has untilled his wide reading and ytical capacity to examine the question of the origin and significance of the Minaret Known as the Qutb Minar.

Premising his pamphlets with the observation that the correct expression is Manar and proceeding on the basis of the style of architecture of the building and the inscriptions therein contained, the author examines the medieval historians who designated the Qutb Manar as a tower of the ancient Hindu period and comes to the conclusion that the lower part of the tower differs essentially from the higher and that the former is of Hindu origin. The village Maharani near which the tower is situated is derived from the Sanskrit word Mihirvali and Mihira is equated with the sum. The author concludes that the tower was originally an observatory. Citing lbn Batuta he states that it was a Hindu temple before Delhi was and that the present mosque was built with the ruins of 27 temples dedicated to the 27 Nakshatras of Hindu astronomy. The 12 sides of the tower represent the 12 Zodiacs and the lion Pillar is the work of Chandragupta, the patron of Kalidasa, who lived about 400 A.D., and whom the author identifies with the son of samudragupta. The inscription on the lron Pillar refers to a Vishnudhvaja and the author, translationg this term as an Observatory Tower arrives at the provisional conclusion that Samudragupta built three astronomical observatories at Gaya, Mehrauli (near Delhi) and at Phiroz Koh in Turkistan, Dr. Triveda puts forward this view and invites correction and criticism.

This brochure is a tribute to Dr. Triveda’s varied scholarship and historical analysis.

 

Introduction

I read the Vishnudhvaja by Dr. D. S. Triveda with great interest. I have known him for many years and have had occasion to see many of his books and research papers.

Dr. Triveda is a genuine scholer in the real sense of the term. He has been advocating the national point of view in the field of Indian history. He has been carrying research in the vast domain of our ancient heritage for over 25 years.

He has propounded many new and interesting theories as under. According to him Aryan invasion of India is a pure and simple myth invented by the British; the sheet anchor of Indian History should be the date of Kurukshetra War, 3137 B. C. and not Alexander- Chandragupta Maurya 327 B.C.; Lord Buddha attained Nirvana in 1793 B. C. and not in 483 B.C. It was Samudragupta who defeucus Nikator, commander-in-chief of Alexander the Great, married his daughter, and received Megasthense, the Greek ambassador, in his court, etc.

Thus Dr. Triveda’s new theories tend to bring a great revolution in the field of Indian history. One may or may not agree with his view diametrically opposed as they are to the modern accepted views of western scholars and their followers in India. Nevertheless they deserve consideration and serious thinking.

His Vishnudhvaja is a fruit of considerable study and research. It is an eye-opener to all serious students of Indian history. His views should not be brushed aside. They should be given due consideration and accepted or rejected on their merits. I pen these lines as a layman with the hope that scholars of Indian history would give consideration to the theories of Dr. Triveda and offer constructive criticism and accept or reject them on their merits.

Dr. Triveda has to work very hard in the face of numerous opposition and difficulties. I would be Indology to unravel many of the mysteries of our history and culture. I wish him all success in his venture.
