Descripción del producto

Descripción del producto

Travel guidebooks for the ultra curious, Approach Guides reveal a destination’s essence by exploring a compelling aspect of its cultural heritage: art, architecture, history, food, or wine.

South India is the premier region for Hindu architecture and is the only place in the world where you can see a large number of Hindu temples from all time periods and empires. In our downloadable travel ebook to South India, we help you appreciate the unique elements of each temple style and threads that connect the architectural history of each temple.

Given that the Hindu empires of the South were able to hold off the imperial expansion of Islamic forces, Hindu architecture in South India did not suffer the same destruction as that in the North. As a result, the South's complexes remain largely intact, offering an abundance of temples from all time periods and empires.

This Approach Guide explores South India’s architecture by looking at temples built by eight of the most powerful Hindu empires in Tamil Nadu (Pallava, Pandyan, Chola, and Nayak) and Karnataka (Chalukya, Rashtrakuta, Hoysala, and Vijayanagar). This guide begins by reviewing the defining features of each empire’s architectural style, with a focus on innovations and trademark elements. The goal is to provide travelers with an appreciation of both what makes each empire’s architecture unique, as well as what connects it to that of those empires that came before and those that would come after.

Intuitively organized and loaded with over 100 high-resolution photos, this guidebook serves as an ideal reference, both for pre-travel research and on location touring.

We hope you enjoy what we believe is a totally unique cultural guide to South India's vast Hindu temple legacy.

An excellent overview of the history and architectural principles of Hindu Temples. Found it very useful on a recent South Indian temple tour. The author usefully draws comparisons with the North Indian style of Hindu temples. A very good quick reference.
