This book was researched through personal visits to World Heritage sites in India and the monuments associated with them, to enjoy the depiction of human beauty in decorative sculpture and architecture and the narration of mythology therein. A brief introduction to the principal religious groups who have made their home in this dynamic region leads into a description of the developmental stages of various architectural components and artistic styles in the different regions over the past 1500 years, from pre-historic cave art and ancient temples to more recent churches built under Western influence. The author details the technological and artistic progress of Indian temple construction in the context of cultural and religious shifts throughout history.

About the Author:

Ali Javid was born in South India, where he began his study of ancient temple sculpture and the related mythology. Through decades of study and repeated visits to lesser-known monuments as well as the principal temple complexes, with comparative tours of religious centers in Angkor, Bangkok and the Mayan ruins, he has developed an appreciative eye for the achievements of early sculptors.
