Temples of the Kalachuri Period

Dr. Amrendra Kumar Singh (Author)
Synopsis The present work is a comprehensive volume on the architectural development and figurative scheme of the temples erected during the Kalachuri period in Central India. It embodies an indepth study of the temples (brick and stone both) and monasteries known so far, as well as those explored in recent past by us. It includes those temples as well which may not be necessarily an erection under the Kalachuries hence of different genre, but all under the broader denomination of the Kalachuri period. In order to bring home the point, the temples of neighbouring region have also been ited. Simultaneously, while discussing these temples of nagara sikhara, sufficient care has been taken to narrate the sculptural wealth as well. Wherein, a gradual process of evolution in the monuments, commencing from the monolithic prototype (circa 6-7 cent. A.D.) to structural temples of the region, could easily be discerned. In the initial pages of this book, a general survey of the subject, historical back drop of the Kalachuris, the then ruling dynasty and an overview of the architecture has been incorporated. Latter on, the horizontal and vertical disposition of the temples has been discussed in length, which shows regional accents in its treatment and elaboration. The book embodies over hundred photographs and drawings and the latest research on temple architecture. It will prove of immense help to the scholars and serious students of ancient Indian art and architecture.
