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

M A Dhaky (Editor) Michael W. Meister (Editor)
Synopsis The Part 3 in two binds, as was the case with the earlier two parts, surveys the tenth century temples (and associated Structures) in different provinces of the north Indian mega-territory, built under the political aegis of the then ruling various provincial – principal, and subordinate – dynasties. Among these, the more notable were the Cahamanas of Sakambhari and of Naddula, and Solankis of Anahillapataka in western India; also, the Kalacuris of Cedidesa olim Dahaladesa, Candellas of Jejakabhukti, and Kacchapaghatas of Gopagiri in central India, and the Somavamsis of Kalingadesa in eastern India. The text, running in 21 chapters, has been copiously illustrated with drawings (ground plans and base-elevations) and adequate number of photographs as in all previous parts, drawn very largely from the AIIS’s photo-archives at the Varanasi Center. Prepared, as before, by the American Institute of Indian Studies, it reflects the contributions by Krishna Deva, M.A. Dhaky, and Michael Meister. The Part 4 of this volume, to come next, will deal with the buildings of the many dynasties of northern India. It will describe and illustrate the buildings which were built in the High Medieval and Late Medieval styles.
