Temples of South India
Temples of South India
Description

About the Book

The temple is the most significant monument of Indian architecture as it sums up and represents the subtle values of Indian culture. Elaborations of the temple structure followed the firm establishment of image worship and the accompanying development of the ritual, which took time to crystallise. The evolution of different architectural forms in north, south and other parts of India was a later development. This book presents a comprehensive picture of the chronologically uninterrupted chain of extant south Indian temples, explaining the niceties of their architecture, the many subtle variations in style and their evolution over the years.

Testimonials
I have always been delighted with your excellent service and variety of items.
James, USA

Priya, USA
Thank you. You are providing an excellent and unique service.
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
