Singhasan Battisi literally translates to ‘Thirty-two tales of the Throne.’ It is essentially a collection of 32 stories associated with the life of the legendary king, Maharaja Vikramaditya. All the tales give insight into the reign of the great king- what was he like and what was his approach to issuing justice. Essentially, the stories were narrated to the 11th-century king, Raja Bhoj, by 32 statues of women that were engraved in Vikramaditya’s throne. Each statue tells a story to the king convincing him to leave Vikramaditya’s throne as he is unworthy of it. All the tales are still equally relevant and applicable to contemporary society as they were when they were written.
