About this Item: Sundeep Prakashan, 1984. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. Karnataka, like other South Indian States, is extensively and intensively dotted with richly ornamented and intricately carved temples of various sizes dedicated to various deities. The number and richness of the temples speak about the importance they had acquired owing to the role they played in every sphere of human life during the medieval period. The temple covered all walks of life of man and society such as religion, education, employment, economy, finearts etc. In other words temple became `a nucleus which gathered round itself all that was best in the arts of civilized existence and regulated them with the humanness born of the spirit of Dharma`, especially so during the medieval period. So far the temples have been studied from the point of view of the development of art and architecture and also as a religious centre. Very little work has been done regarding the role of the temples of Karnataka in Socio-economic life during the medieval period. This is a first updated picture of the area of study. The sources for the study are apigraphical. The author has been successful in marshalling all the available epigraphical sources and has judiciously utilised the same keening in mind the need for proper regional representation in selecting inscriptions for test case study. In the treatment of the sources of his study the author has also carefully examined both the qualitative and quantitative aspects of the transactions of the temples, the mode of administration, their finance, role as banker, employer, educational centre and as repository of fine-arts like music, dance and drama. Preface 1. Introduction 2. Temple Administration 3. Temple finance 4. Temple as Bank 5. Temple as an Employer 6. Temple as Educational Centre 7. Temple as Repository of Fine Arts 8.

About this Item: Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts/ D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd, 2012. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. The Kalamukha temples in Karnataka are associated with the Lakulashaiva movement especially the beliefs and practices of the Kalamukha Shaivites and the jakkanacari style of temples in Karnataka. This volume is a study of two of the best examples of Kalamukha shrines in the region. It focuses on the Somanatheshvara temple at Haralahalli and Kadambeshvara temple at Rattihalli, splendid examples of conversion of single-cell shrines into triple sancta. With numrous illustrations of the temples including their plans and sculptures and referring to and quoting from the Agamas, the Puranas and other ancient works, it studies the architecture of the temples along with their history, the general plans of the temples, their interior including pillars, lintel and entrances, their external structure, and their iconography, particularly the main deities in the temples. It makes a unique effort to study the inscriptions associated with the temples which are in Kannada interlaced with Sanskrit verses and containing Sanskrit words, presenting their Roman transliteration and translation into English. The inscriptions include one on renovation of Someshvara temple by King Joma (ce 1181), one on the foundation of a temple of Daseshvara laid by Dasiraja (ce 1188) and one that eulogises the Kadambas and minister Soma (ce 1144). The volume, with extensive notes that explain terms in a simple manner, will prove invaluable to scholars and students of Indology, especially those interested in early medieval religion, culture and architecture in South India. Printed Pages: 677. Seller Inventory # 35037

This three-volume book gives a complete survey of the surviving Hindu and Jaina temples in the northern half of Karnataka from the period AD 1000-1300. These temples form a homogenous body of monuments that is one of the most interesting in India. From an architectural point of view it is most interesting of all, because an important characteristic of Indian temples-is taken to its limits. Nowhere else in India, or for that matter in the entire world, the decoration of architecture with architecture is so abundant and so detailed. The ambition to be complete required a lot of fieldwork, because about 50 of the 220 monuments included have not been published before. But not only ‘new’ temples were visited; without exception all temples presented in this book were seen at least once. During each visit many photographs were made. All of the approximately 1400 photographs published in the second and third volumes were made by the author. In addition to their scholarly value, the present volumes are very valuable for any layman with interest in architecture. This is because the monuments of the period are so extremely interesting for their sophisticated play with architectural elements, and because the photographs are so carefully taken and so instructive. With regard to photographs this book easily surpasses all others on old Indian temples. Printed Pages: 857 with 203 figures, 184 plates and 15 maps. Size: 23 Cms x 29 Cms. Seller Inventory # 023652
