This concept is supported by the great Kalhana in his Rajatarangini where he quotes: “In Kashmir, there is not a speck as large as grain of sesame without a Shrine”. (1.38). All the chapters of this gigantic work are completed but still afresh revise is needed before the final execution can be made.
