This two-volume work explains the religious and spiritual significance of the temple through copious references to Sanskrit texts. It depicts the Hindu Temple as not merely a heap of brick, stone or wood but a visible symbol of aspirations of pious men and women, the throbbings of their hearts in religious fervour and their endeavour for the attainment of salvation. This is most comprehensive and authoritative treatise of ancient Indian Temple Architecture.
