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.
