Reseña del editor
There is nothing new under the sun... and then there are the temples of India. For many who have roamed the byways of the subcontinent, it is these myriad mind-expanding palaces of faith that fill the spirit and make the fare worthwhile. They are enough to give you religion. 3-D songs of praise to the fecund possibilities of both environment and human intention, they are as diverse as the landscapes of Asia and yet share a grace and delicacy of invention. Focusing on Jain as well as Hindu constructions, this exemplary volume takes us on a revelatory historical journey to trace both the traditions and developments in their design, from the wood and cave temples of the first few hundred years AD, through early experiments in stone to the three dominant architectural strands. Whether it be Nagara in the north, Vesara in the central highlands or the Dravda ""walled city"" complexes of the south, each style is fully presented and analysed in a series of detailed photographs, drawings, plans and excavations. Just as the temple sancta themselves become more sacred the further in you penetrate, so this book offers greater rewards the longer you spend in its company.

first 'chidambaram' place of cosmic dancing shiva called 'natarajar'. this is the second largest temple in tamil nadu. here the 'karpagraham' is golden roofed. just 125 km from thanjavur. its built in cholas period.
second 'gangaikonda cholapuram' this is built by son of 'raja raja cholan'. this is similiar shape to 'thanjavur - prahadeeswarar' temple. actuall its planned to build bigger than that. its basement is bigger than 'thanjavur temple' but gopuram is smaller. just around 70 km from thanjavur. its also cholas period.
third 'kumbakonam' here you can fine lot of temples, this city called temple city. only 50 km from thanjavur. its too cholas period.
fourth 'dharasuram' in here the temple is not huge but the craftmanship is great. only 5 km from kumbakonam towards thanjavur.
i really wondering how this author missed these very interestin and great temples. without these temples this book is not worth to me! but i bought it!!
