Translated by A Taluodar Of Oudh, 370 Pages, Hardcover.
The greater part of the present volume is taken up with the description of Vratas or fasts, followed by feasts and gifts to the Brahamanas. According to its own statement, this Purana is 16th in the order of precedence. This is according to the northern rescission, where the Brahama Purana stands first. According to the southern rescenssion, the Matsya Purana heads the list, showing thereby that this is par excellence the Purana of the southern people.
