Review By James Parisian

The Illustrated Mahabhara

If you love the Mahabharata, this is a beautiful book that highlights the seminal moments with artwork and illustrations. I purchased this for my daughter who has read the Mahabharata multiple times and watched every film made about The Mahabharata; and, she loves the book!
