Natyamandapams and Kuttampalams

Parameswaran Murthiyedath (Author)

Natyasdstra by Bharatamuni is believed to have been written circa 2nd c. BC and describes the notyamandapa, where the performances were meant to be held. The concepts and requirements of the construction of the natyamandapas have been prescribed in good detail in the Natyaśöstra. The author follows a meticulous documentation of the natyamandapas and küttampalams in different parts of the southern State of Kerala. Since a natyamandapa as described in the Ndtyofdstra is not found anywhere else in India, this book should create a new interest in the subject. All the architectural and engineering data presented in the book have been culled from the respective design files of each küttampalam. It is hoped that this book would receive acceptance and will be accessed by the discerning readers who are interested in the subject. Contents: Preface, Foreword, 1. Introduction, 2.
