India and South-East Asia: The Buddhist and Hindu Tradition (A History of Architecture)
India and South-East Asia: The Buddhist and Hindu Tradition (A History of Architecture)
Description
Back of the Book

Firmly rooted in Indian religion, cosmology and society, this book describes the evolution of architecture on the Indian sub-continent and the neighbouring countries of south-east Asia from the earliest times to the rise of Islam at the end of the 11th century in the north and in the 17th century in the south.

The Vedic and native traditions of the 2nd millennium BC, modified by the changing demands of worship, stand behind the characteristic forms of Buddhist and Hindu temples, palaces, and even town planning. Describing a complex line of development — from the monumental excavated shrines at Ajanta to such late southern temple complexes as Madurai and the palace fort at Gwalior — India and South-East Asia also covers the exported tradition in Java, Cambodia, Burma and Thailand, which resulted in such stupendous monuments as Angkor Was and the Shwe Dagon Pagoda in Rangoon.

Testimonials

Thiru, UK
Thank You very much for this wonderful opportunity for helping people to acquire the spiritual treasures of Hinduism at such an affordable price.
Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
