An Encyclopaedia Of Hindu Architecture (Manasara Series: Vol. VII)
An Encyclopaedia Of Hindu Architecture (Manasara Series: Vol. VII)
Description
From the Jacket:

An Encyclopaedia of Hindu Architecture is comprehensive work on the technical terminology now obsolete but then in vogue of the creators of such epics in stone as those of Sanchi and Konark during the ancient and medieval periods of Indian History. It contains about three thousand terms culled with indefatigable industry spread over a long span of years from ancient architectural treatise Manasara and Vastu-Sastras, Agamas, Puranas, Brahmanas Sutras, epics, Literary works, epigraphical records and manuscripts in obscure scripts. The terms are arranged in the order of Sanskrit alphabet. A brief rendering in English followed by extensive quotations from various sources and supplemented by line drawings and photographs elucidate every aspect of the term, leaving no room from ambiguity. Two appendices one giving a sketch of Sanskrit treatise on architecture and the other furnishing a list of historical architects with short notes on their works, are needed.

This monumental work has remained a standard treatise of reference since its publication in 1946 for all connected with architecture.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.

I was very happy to find these great Hindu texts of the ancient times. Been a fan of both Mahabhratham and Ramayanam since I was a small boy. Now the whole family can enjoy these very important cultural texts at home.
