Mahabharata : Architecture, Science and Technology

Mahabharata Resource : Architecture, Science and Technology is a compilation of the contents appearing in the great epic Mahabharata on the topics of:

Architecture, Construction/Buildings

Astronomy: Event days according to Hindu almanac and General Astronomy

Botanical/flora: Names of several tress/Plants/Creepers etc

Medicine/Medical: Conception & birth, Doctors, Diseases & symptoms, Treatments, Wonder Medicines, Poisons/toxins etc

References to flying and

Special cases

While the compilation is not exhaustive, most of the key or representative passages have been included in this compilation. The contents are from Mahabharata epic excluding the Bhagavad Gita.

I hope the readers will find the document of some use in their study on these topics.

I have extracted these contents from my other comprehensive & unique work on Mahabharata called MahabharataSpectroscope. Whereas the material in that was included in the order in which it appears in the original epic, in this compilation I have grouped them by meaningful Topics & Sub-topics thus making it much more useful to the student/scholar of this subject. Some passages have been expanded by including material from the original epic.
