 DESCRIPTION
spacer
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 fifty-one in number, fully clarify 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 latter identified with the help of actual examples on one hand and the definitions of the form given 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.
