SAMBHAR LAKE – AD 992

Sakanaraka, also known as Shakambhari after the goddess of the same name, slept on the east bank of the Sambhar Lake. Clouds covered the full moon's face, leaving the walls, towers, temples and buildings of the Chauhan capital in the shadows.

The wind howled between the town and the saline lake shore as owls called each other from their perches wrapped in darkness. Most humans were asleep under their roofs, but other creatures, not completely human, still roamed the empty streets of the city so fast as to be invisible like ghosts.
