Ruruksetra, also known as Ridiksetra, situated at the confluence of the Gandaki and Ridikhola rivers in Nepal is an important tirthasthala, not only for the people pf Nepal, but to all Hindus of the world.It is deemed as sacred as Kashi in India. Despite its importance, modernization of society, lack of knowledge and the death of literature about the relevance and significance of the site, the interest of people is fast declining. The books goes into deep study of the whole concept and is a serious attempt to restore the ancient puranic grand tradition of this tirthsthala. It covers a brand spectrum of the sacred complexes, the existing monuments, development of tourism and also the need for conservation of ancient-historic monuments. To make the volume more attractive, authentic and informative, besides important information, photographs of monuments, unpublished documents and inscriptions and the map showing the position of sacred places has been included.
