Encyclopaedia of Indian Temple Architecture: Volume 1, Part 2: South India: Upper Dravidadesa Early Phase, A.D 550-1075 (In 2 Volumes)

 
M A Dhaky (Editor) Michael W. Meister (Editor)
Synopsis This second set in a series covering the full range of Indian Temple Architecture surveys early temples in Upper Dravidadesa, particularly those of the Calukyas of Badami and of Vengi and the Rastrakutas of Malkhed.  Other dynasties discussed are the Alupas, Telugu-Codas and Vaidumbas, Gangas, Nolambas, Santaras, and the early Hoysalas.  Arranged by region and dynasty, the Chapters also suggest something of the nature of local idioms and regional artistic styles, and are lavishly illustrated with photographs and drawings from the Institute's archives.  Prepared by the American Institute of Indian Studies' Centre for Art and Archaeology, Varanasi, these volumes reflect the contribution of a group of leading Indian archaeologists, co-ordinated by M.A. Dhaky, Associate Director at the Centre.  Edited by Professor Michael W. Meister of the History of Art and South Asia Regional Studies Departments of the University of Pennsylvania, with Mr. Dhaky, these volumes contribute to the ongoing documentation and analysis of Indian monuments required for further work in the field.  Following volumes will deal with later Calukya, Hoysala, and other styles of South India, and with the development of temple architecture in the North.  Each volume is provided with a brief reference Glossary of architectural terms and fully annotated Glossary volumes are under preparation by the Centre to form a separate part of this series.
