Book Description
The earthly dwelling of the cosmic deities, such as the Indian temple. Its walls swarm with statues and symbols of the Indian pantheon. This volume surveys the masterpieces of Hindu and Jain architecture, the products of a millenarian, tradition. Until the 6th century A.D., temples translated into stone the rudiments of timber architecture. Rock cut gave way to freestanding temples, but both embodied the complex Indian cosmology. Then in the north-east, century, came new styles, the Nagara in the north-east, the Vesara, of the central plateau and the Dravida
