Preface

Kalpatharu Research Academy, Bangalore has brought out many useful volumes highlighting the manifold aspects of Indian culture. This is in perfect accordance with the tile ‘Bharatiya-Samskriti-Sarvasva-Kosh’. In keeping with this avowed purpose, we are now publishing an art-book, a pictorial volume dealing with the origin and development of Hoysala Art. It represents a visual survey of important but little noticed monuments of the tenth and eleventh centuries. We are grateful to Prof. Dr. S.K. Ramachandra Rao for having planned this pictorial volume with the help of his students Vinay K. Hegde and B.S. Surya Prakash.

We are deeply indebted to His Holiness Sri Sri Sri Bharati Tirtha Mahaswamiji, Jagadguru of Sri Sringeri Sharada Peetham and the chief patron of the Academy for his generous blessings and we also acknowledge the keen interest evinced by Shri V.R. Gowrishankar. Administrator of the Sringeri Sharada Peetham and Chairman of the Academy.

We also acknowledge the generous financial assistance from the Ministry of Human Resources Development, Department of Education, Govt. of India, New Delhi, and Dept. of Education, Govt. of Karnataka, Bangalore.

We record our appreciation of the excellent production of this volume by the Omkar Offset Printers.

 

Introduction

It is usual to recognize Hoysala architecture and sculpture in the well known temples at Belur, Halebid and other cites in the Hassan district of Karnataka. But the provincial capital of the early Hovsalas was Tondanur (Tonnur) in the Mysore area, and we have monuments there which exhibit the influences of Ganga. Rashtrakua and Chola idioms on the Hoysala style. The present pictorial volume contains photographs of the monuments in Tonnur and the neighbourhood suggesting the formative phase of what may be described as Hoysala art. My young friends and students, Vinay Hegde and Surya Prakash have taken fine and representative photographs of the specimens of architecture and sculpture of the early Hoysala art, although most of these monuments have undergone changes in the later 1-loysala, Vijayanagar and the Mysore Wodeyar periods.

I am grateful to Sri Sri Sri Bharathi Theertha Mahaswamiji of Sri Sringeri Sharada Peetham and the chief patron of the Academy the Administrator of the Peetham, Sri V.R. Gowrishankar and the Chairman of the Academy. I am indebted to Sri Daivajna K.N. Somayaji Director of the Academy for accepting this work among the Academy’s publications. I also acknowledge the courtesy and co-operation of my friends in the Omkar Offset Printers during the production of this volume.
