Much has been written on the Hindu temple. If
some writers have meticulously traced its evolution through the
ages, others have marvelled at its architecture and the
engineering skill of its builders. A few have struggled to
discover its meaning and symbology. But none of these writings
keeps the average Hindu in view and supplies him with all the
essential information in nontechnical terms. This is exactly what
has been attempted in this monograph.
It may be a tall claim to
say that it speaks "all about" the Hindu temples! But a little
patient and sympathetic perusal will convince the readers that it
is a modest attempt at providing essential information about the
Hindu temple in a nutshell to a layman.
A few ideas that may
help activate the temple and its dynamic rehabilitation in the
Hindu society have been presented in the-epilogue. It is hoped
that these ideas will provide the-modem Hindu leaders with some
food for serious thought.
