The Unknown Craftsman

Sneak Preview!

Towards the end of the eighth century, an architect journeys across the lower Himalayas in search of the perfect site for constructing a temple, not merely as a place of worship but as a monumental record crystallizing the collective accomplishment of a civilization. Is he equal to the task? He faces his own fears and the forces of nature test his learning along the path. With technical knowledge, he has to cross over to spiritual readiness. When he arrives at his destination, mysterious apprentices assist him in executing the temple. But the work attains perfection midway and the temple remains unfinished.
