About Book:

The Puranas are infallible source of information of Indian history of religion, philosophy, culture and civilisation, polity of society, arts and crafts, architecture and inconography besides royal dynasties and period of their rule. It was long felt that a comprehensive Index of the Puranas was a desideratum. We have an Index to Vedic literature by Macdonell and Keith, we have also one to the Mahabharata by Sorensen, then why not a similar Index to all the eighteen major and an equal number of the minor Puranas which constitute an important branch of Indian literature?
