The fifteen papers collected in this volume are related to the author`s investigations into the history of astronomical instruments in India. The history of astronomical instrumentation in India is dominated by two mutually contradictory - yut complimentary - currents: on the one hand the resilience of certain archaic instruments that held sway for long even after they had become obsolete; on the other, Indian astronomers` receptivity to exotic instruments from other cultures. Hence the title of the volume: The Archaic and the Exotic.
