Chalukyan Temples of Andhradesa
Abhinav Publications/Kaveri Books; New Delhi, India; 8170171717 / 9788170171713; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
During the sixth century A.D., the two great empires-those of the Chalukyas of Badami and the Pallavas of Kanchi in the Decan and South India, respectively, have ushered in an era of vigorous temple building activity, reflecting in its mores the mingling of forms and ideals. Andhradesa which came under Chalukyan control witnessed the growth of Alampur as a great art center of seminal importance. Following the innovative trends initiated at Alampur and perhaps under the guidance of the Alampur guild, temples were raised at Kudaveli, Mahanandi, Panyam, Satyavou and Kadamarakalava. The unique feature of the architectural form is its kinship with the Nagara temple form; the temple of Dravidian style is a lone exception. This monograph, for the first time, presents an exhaustive documentation of morphological data of the temples at Alampur, Kudaveli, Mahanandi, Satyavolu, Panyam and Kadamarakalava. Analysis of architectural form and ornament has been done in a detailedmanner emphasizing the impact of the traditions of Madhyadesa, Kosala and Vidarbha in contradistinction to the centers of Karnata, i.e., Aihole and Pattadakal. Sculpture has also received close attention, emphasizing the art-form and feeling. An assessment of these structures both in time and in space has been systematically attempted in this monography. Adequate photographic illustrations illuminate the text. Printed Pages: 124. 108039
