Art and Architecture of Post-Gupta Period

Himani Khanna (Author)

‘Art and Architecture of Post-Gupta Period’ raises and attempts at resolving many other related question as to who built these well-evolved temples, hundreds of them, two hundred at a single site like Batesara, within a century and a half after the death of Harshavardhana, the last of the Great Guptas, when the scepter-holding hands were subjugated and struggled for survival. It reinterprets the co-relation between art and history, the two reciprocal disciplines, discovering in the style of architecture conformity to a contention of history, and in a historical claim, the distinction of an architecture-style. It sometimes views art as reflecting a mental state which histories do not reveal so effectively. In their effort at distancing the style of their temple-architecture from that of Chandela temples, the most celebrated idiom of temple architecture widely pursued those days, the aversion of Kachchhapaghat rulers towards Chandelas more powerfully reveals than it does in a statement of history, and all without any kind of acrimony. The stud also unearths some glaring examples of sectarian antipathy.
