Temples of South India
Temples of South India
Description

About the Book

The temple is the most significant monument of Indian architecture as it sums up and represents the subtle values of Indian culture. 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 evolution of different architectural forms in north, south and other parts of India was a later development. This book presents a comprehensive picture of the chronologically uninterrupted chain of extant south Indian temples, explaining the niceties of their architecture, the many subtle variations in style and their evolution over the years. 

About the Author

He was for many years Chairman, Archaeological Society of south India, Madras. He was awarded the Padma Bhushan in 1991 for his contribution to the field of archaeology, temple art and epigraphy.

Fotis, Greece
I've just received the shawl and love it already!! Thank you so much,
Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
B. Werts, USA
