The present work is an attempt at the reconstruction of the early Medieval social History of Kashmir with special reference to the Loharas (A. D. 1003-1171) and provides a thorough Study of all those aspects of Society and culture which are essential for clear understanding of an Age. flawed on abundant source material available in London in Sanskrit, Persian, German and French and other old and rare books, it presents a new approach to the understanding of history and culture of the then geographically isolated hill kingdom, in the Context of Indian background.
