Monolithic Temples of Madhya Pradesh

D. Dayalan (Author)
Synopsis The monolithic temples are the most revolutionary architectural design in the whole spectrum of Indian art. Madhya Pradesh, being a meeting ground of different cultures, is endowed with three major monolithic creations in addition to one of elementary stage at Udaigiri and a number of miniature monolithic models of a little later period. The chief aim of this book is to focus the evolution, technique, architectural style and iconographio-religious perspective of the monolithic legacy of Madhya Pradesh, in comparison with the monolithic wonders of other regions, both earlier to and later than them. The book also contains the first authentic information of the art and architectural elements of the cheese-cake models at Vasavi and Pudur, which are noticed recently. The conspectus of almost all the monolithic temples in India alongwith photographic illustrations and the chart showing the correlations of terminology for the main structural parts of the temple in the north and south India are some of the notable supplementaries of the book. The awe-inspiring monolithic temples are shown in a superb selection of photographs integrated with the text, many of them for the first time brought out here. The line drawings present the details of temple plans and their architectural features.
