History of Chanderi (Hindi)
This radio programme speaks about Chanderi. A small village in the state of Madhya Pradesh in India where most of the people are weavers and is known for its saris.
The history dates back to the reign of King Kriti Pal of Chanderi who was the ruler then. One night in his dream Maa Jageshwari told him to build a temple and told him not to open the temple doors for nine days. King Kriti Pal could not stop himself and he opened the gates on the third day and found out that Maa Jageshwari was erupting from the ground and only her head had come out then.
