THE CHANDELA CUISINE

OF
MADHYA BHARAT
THE CHANDELAS, WHO RAISED TO POWER DURING THE
EARLY 10
TH
CENTURY A.D.HAD THEIR CAPITAL AT KHAJURAHO,
DECORATED THE PLACE WITH POND & TEMPLES. ACCORDING
TO THE LOCAL TRADITION THERE WERE EIGHTY FIVE
TEMPLES BUT NOW TWENTY FIVE STANDS IN VARYING
STAGES OF PRESERVATION.
THERE WAS NEITHER ANY SEPARATE TERRITORY CALLED AS
BUNDELKHAND & NOR ANY OF ITS POLITICAL IDENTITY, IN THE
PAST. HISTORIANS BELIEVE THAT MODERN BUNDELKHAND
REPRESENTTHE ENTIRE TERRITORY RULED BY CHANDELAS.
THE TERM BUNDELKHAND WAS USED WHEN RAJPUT INVADED
THIS AREA. BUNDELKHAND WAS EARLIER KNOWN BY VARIOUS
NAME i.e. DASHAN PADMAVATI.
ACCORDING TO LEGENDS THE BUNDELAS ORIGINATED FROM
THE GAHARWAR! FAMILY OF KASHI, WHO WERE
DESCENDENTS OF KUSH! " LORD RAM#S SON.
IT IS SAID THAT KARTRAJ, A DESCENDENT OF LUV! WAS
ADMIRED BY PANDITS TO ORGANISE A RITUAL TO PREVENT
THE EVIL INFLUENCE. THROUGH THIS THEY CAME TO BE
KNOWN AS GAHARWAR!. THESE GAHARWARS LATER BECAME
FAMOUS AS BUNDELAS!.
1
THE REASON OF BUNDELKHAND HAS BEEN MENTIONED THE
GREAT EPICS OF RAMAYANA & MAHABHARATA. OUR GREAT
SAGE HAS ENHANCED THE CULTURE OF OUR COUNTRY WITH
THEIR VAST KNOWLEDGE DERIVED FROM THIS PLACE OF
WORSHIP. FOR A LONG TIME BUNDELKHAND REMAINED A
PLACE OF CONJUGATION BETWEEN ARYANS & NON ARYANS.
THE ART & THE CRAFT HAS ALSO BEEN HIGHEST DRAWER,
JAYSTAMBH OF AREA & ANCIENT INSCRIPTIONS & ENGRAVED
ON STONES AT BARAHMURTHI ARE SOME E$AMPLES OF
ARTISAN SKILL OVER HERE. THE TEMPLE OF DEVGARH &
KHAJURAHO DEPICTS THE MARVEL OF THEIR ARTECHETURAL
SKILL.
IMMORTAL MUSIAN LKE TANSEN & MADHUR ALI HAS
BROUGHT LAUREL TO THIS REGION OF MADHYA BHARAT.
DURING THE ROLE OF CHANDELA DYNASTY, THE TEMPLE
ERACTED IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CREATION OF INDIAN
ARCHITECTURE OF NAGAR STYLE.THOSE IS THE FLAWLESS
EVIDENCES OF THEIR ULTIMATE RELIGIOUS TOLERANCES.
THE TEMPLES BUILDINGS, CASTLES & PONDS ARE THE
PROUD E$AMPLES OF THEIR CULTURAL HERITAGE.THE
HISTORY OF BUNDELKHAND IS STILL LIVING BY TE POEM, &
WILL BE EVER REMEMBERED BY THEIR FAMOUS POETS,
KINGS, MUSICIANS, & FREEDOMFIGHTERS.
