Description
About the Book

The Hindu Temple is a comprehensive expose on the evolution of a simple and sacred place of worship to a monument, which over the centuries became the pivot of Indian religiosity, culture and aesthetic significance; the super-ordinate ideological focus of society and polity. Tracing its origin to the pre-Christian era, its sanctity, and the unwavering reverence accorded to it even today, is manifested in the elaborate rituals performed within its precincts by devotees, and the festivals celebrated by them.

The book brings into special prominence the relevance of the temple in the social, economic and political integration of the subcontinent. Authoritatively written and impressively illustrated with exceptional and rare photographs, it elucidates in minute and graphic detail the multifaceted sculptural and architectural wonder that is the Hindu temple.
