Description

About the Book

The temple is the most significant and typical monument of Indian architecture and admirable sums up and represents the subtle values of Indian culture. The elaborations of the temple structure followed the firm establishment of image-worship and the accompanying development of the ritual, which took time to crystallise. The present book on the temples of North India discusses the general characteristics of the North India temple, tracing the origin and evolution of the various temple styles in this region. It would help the layman appreciate better the architectural niceties found in these temples, and also understand their significance.

About the Author

Krishna Deva, formerly Director, Archaeological Survey of India, and later Director, Birla Academy of Art, Calcutta, is an eminent scholar of Indian art and architecture. He has made several significant archaeological explorations in our country during the past three decades, alone, or with other explores like Sir Aurel Stein, Dr Mortimer Wheeler, and N.G. Mazumdar. Having organised the Temple Survey Project (North Region) of the Archaeological Survey of India, he conducted a systematic architectural survey of the temples of North India in general and Central India in particular.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
Andreas, Germany.
