The Early Rulers of Khajuraho
- +

The Candellas of Bundelkhand formed one of the most prominent dynasties that flourished for some centuries before the establishment of Islam as an Imperial Power in the sub-continent. They are known in history not only for their political sagacity and contribution to the social and economic stability of the country during a period of intense political rivalry, turmoil and foreign invasions, but also for their direct association with the art and architecture that developed in Khajuraho and its neighbourhood.

The book deals, in a comprehensive manner, with the history of the early rulers of Khajuraho, in fourteen chapters. Chs. I-II deal with the origin of the Candellas and define their territory. Ch. III traces their history from Nannuka to Harsa. Chs. IV-VII recount the rise of their power under Yasovarman and Dhanga, their struggles with the Muslims under Ganda and Vidyadhara and their conflicts with Cedis under Vijayapala, Devavarman and Kirtivarman. Ch. VIII is devoted to the rulers from Sallaksanavarman to Madanavarman. Ch.IX describes Cahamana-Candella rivalry and the fall of Mahoba. Ch.X deals with the temporary restoration of Candella power under Trailokyavarman. Chs. XI-XIV give a vivid picture of political, social economic, religious and cultural life of Bundelkhand and offer a survey of its magnificent temples and sculptors.

The book contains four Appendices: (1) Inscriptions of the Candella times, (2) Genealogy of the Candella Dynasty, (3) Candella Land Grants and Feudalism, (4) A Note on some Aspects of Candella Architecture. It is documented with Bibliography, Index, Plates and Map of the Candella Dynasty.
