About the Author

Valerie Gillet is a member of the Ecole francaise d'Extreme-Orient. Her research focuses on material mostly found in the religious monuments excavated or built on the territories of the two main early medieval South Indian dynasties, the Pallavas and the Pandyas. She also attempts to map the emergence and the development of the cult of the deity called Subrahmanya/Murukan in the medieval Tamil- speaking South. Since 2007, she has been posted at the Pondicherry Centre of the EFEO, of which she became Head in 2011. She has published a study of the narrative iconography of the 8th century structural Pallava temples entitled La creation d'une iconographie sivaite narrative: Incarnations du dieu dam les temples pallava construits, as well as several articles on material from the Pallava period and sacred places related to Subrahrnanya/Murukan.
