The Ceilings of Indian Temples

Harihar Singh (Author)

Ornate and carved ceilings in Indian temples are unique and timeless works of art, with a symmetry and
allure of their own. They are hallowed spaces in the spiritual context, possessing meaning, context and
significance to worshippers as well as scholars of art and architecture. The exquisite ceilings of ancient and
mediaeval times that exist in Indian temples, designed, carved and decorated with aesthetic finesse by
extraordinary artists, continue to fascinate us to this day.  Based on the descriptions, techniques and classifications of temple ceilings spelt out in Bhojadeva's Samaranganasutradhara and Bhuvanadeva's Aparajitaprecha, Prof. Harihar Singh of Banaras Hindu University has produced a classical and masterful study on the subject, covering ceilings of temples in both North and South India. His erudition, clarity and painstaking attention to detail are evident in every page of
the book. The book is lavishly illustrated to portray the ceilings, as they exist today, to the reader.  This is a seminal study of the subject; which will be of interest to scholars and lay readers alike.
