This book is the first detailed study on Panchakroshi and its associated inner sanctum, the Antargriha Yatra. At least since the 15th century, devotees continuously perform pilgrimage on these two circuits.

The 108 shrines on the route are described with the help of many maps and illustrations. The topics covered include, among others, the background of the archetypical nature of pilgrimage, the cosmic mandalas and the circulatory paths, the historical background of the Panchakroshi Yatra and its contextual growth, the context of cardinality, the impact of change, the pilgrimage-cognitive maps, sacred territory and sacred time, religious experiences, the Panchakroshi temple, the dharmashalas, the characteristics of pilgrims, the circuit of the inner sanctum, the ecology of place and the Improvement Plan. Finally, the book includes an exhaustive bibliography, followed by appendices giving information on shrines, temples, yatras, etc.
