The Megalithic Splendours of the Dhansiri Valley of Northeast India is based on the field investigation and research conducted by Dr. Pradip Sarma on the magnificent megaliths of the ancient cities of Kachamari and Dimapur beside the Dhansiri River, a tributary of the Brahmaputra.
The megaliths of the Dhansiri Valley, while maintaining their traditional link, are an assimilation of both Hindu and tribal art practiced by the Naga, Garo and some other hill tribes living around the Dhansiri valley.
Studded with motifs and carvings of exquisite beauty, they are one of the finest examples of megaliths around the world. But these artifacts are yet to attract the attention they deserve from scholars and historians, even though they were discovered more than a century ago in a remote corner of the world.
It is, therefore, a sincere desire of Dr. Sarma to throw the light on these unique structures so that they get a place in the history of humankind.
