World Sanskrit Book Fair at Bangalore

Welcome World Sanskrit Bookfair

World Sanskrit Book Fair is being held from January 06, 2011 to January 10, 2011 at National High School Grounds, Basavanagudi.  It was amazing to see Sanskrit books on various topics.  Sanskrit Institutions from different states of India are participating in this book fair.  Some of the books displayed here are very difficult to get outside in bookstalls as they are available from only selected publications like Chaukamba Publications, Delhi.
