Temples in India

Journal of the History and Historical Archaeology

Author: S.P. Gupta

This volume is a study of the beginning and evolution of temple architecture in India which covers sculptures and carvings as well.

With over a hundred plates of temples and carvings on them, including cave facades and pillar depictions, it deals with temples constructed by the different ancient and medieval dynasties in Indian history, particularly the Early Western Calukyan and Later Western Calukyans, Pallava, Pandya, Cola, Hoyasala and Nayaka. With illustrations that include maps, plans of caves and even viharas and caityas, it undertakes a study of the temples found in different States of India. The research discusses the variations in plans and elevations to examine development of temple architecture over time and new experimentations in the building of temples by use of various materials. Reconstructing art and architectural styles from the remnants of the ruined temples in many places, it explains terms and concepts in temple building and architecture and cites examples of various temple styles and traditions including the best and the earliest ones. The focus is on the Dravida and Nagara temple styles and a third hybrid form of shikhara that developed in the Deccan. Many Jaina temples are also covered.

The book will prove extremely useful for scholars and students of Indology, particularly those studying Indian religious architecture.
