Defining religion in the context of Arunachal Pradesh has always been a challenge. The state and its human population were not completely isolated from the mainland Indian culture and society even in the remote past. This book has tried to relate the religious history of Arunachal Pradesh with the existing evidence in the form of ancient Indian epics, texts, contemporary literature and the archaeological investigations conducted over a period of past several decades. A comprehensive analysis of this evidence establishes the presence of Hindu religious elements in ancient Arunachal Pradesh. (jacket)
