Encyclopaedia of Indian Temple Architecture (Volume 1, Part 3, 2 Books)

M. A. Dhaky (Author)
Synopsis This third part, as before in two binds, in a series covering the full range of Indian Temple architecture, surveys medieval temples and associated buildings in Upper dravidadesa, particularly those in the territories of the Calukyas of Kalyana, Hoysalas of Dorasamudra, as well as in those of the other dynasties such as the Kadambas, Rattas, Guttas, Seunas, santaras etc., in Karnataka and those in the domain of the Kakatiyas of Varangal together with those of the Calukyas of Vemulavada, Telugu Codas, Reddis, and Malyalas, all in the Telingana area of Andhra Pradesh, and finally the Alupas of Tulunadu. Arranged by region and dynasty, the Chapters also focus, wherever evidence is clear, on the nature of local idioms and origins of the regional styles; these are copiously illustrated with drawings and photographs as in earlier instances, drawn for the most part from the Institute's archives. Prepared by the American Institute of Indian Studies' Center for Art and Archaeology, Varanasi, the present volume reflects the contribution largely by M.A. Dhaky, Director (Research) at the Center, and a chapter by by late H. Sarkar. Following voklumes will deal with the buildings of the Vijayanagar, pre-Nayaka, and Nayaka dynasties in south India and the medieval and late medieval temples in different regional styles of the dynasties in north India. Each volume is provided architectural terms: fully annotated Glossary will appear as separate (and final) parts of the two main volumes - I and II - of the series.
