THE INDIAN TEMPLE FORMS:IN KARNATA INSCRIPTIONS AND 
ARCHITECTURE
THE INDIAN TEMPLE FORMS:IN KARNATA INSCRIPTIONS AND ARCHITECTURE
Description
About The Book:

Two medieval temple inscriptions from Karnataka, taken together, refer to five specific types of Indian temples, which are also known from the contemporaneous Sanskrit manuals on architecture. The author, in the present monograph, for the first time interprets the correct purport of the inscriptions by examining the context implied, and, with the help of several Sanskrit texts on architecture as well as selected examples from the extant temples in Karnataka, illustrates his points and produces a bulk of fresh evidentiary material never utilized, their existence not even suspected earlier. The text, though highly technical by virtue of the nature of the subject, is nonetheless written in simpler and comprehensible language. The illustrations, some the content of text. After the introductory part, each temple type has been individually discussed at some length. The discussion covers the important formal features associated with each form, the later identified with the help of actual examples given of the form by Sanskrit writers on the other. The work thus is a useful contribution to the study of medieval Indian temple forms which had for over half a century engaged the attention of many scholars in India as well as in the West.

I have always enjoyed browsing through the website. I was recently in south India, and was amazed to note that the bronze statues made in Kumbakonam and Thanjavur had similar pricing as Exotic India.

Thank you very much for your services. I ordered a Dhanvantari Deity from this site and it came quickly and in good condition. Now Sri Dhanvantari ji is worshipped regularly before seeing each client and in the offering of our medicinal products. Thanks again.
