The Mewar Ramayana Digital Reunification Project

The British Library has worked in partnership with Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya, Mumbai and other public institutions in India to reunify the Mewar Ramayana manuscript digitally.

The project brings together, for the first time in almost 200 years, the majority of text folios as well as paintings so that Valmiki's work can be read in the original Sanskrit.

The online version, which comprises over 1,200 images, has been mounted on a Turning The Pages platform, opening up the manuscript to higher education teachers and students as well as the international research community and the general public for the first time ever. Extensive contextual material about the manuscript is presented on an accompanying webpage.
