1 K.S. Behera
Konarak: The Heritage of Mankind, 2 Vols
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 1996; 8173050767 / 9788173050763; Reprinted; Hardcover; New; New; 
In the Indian state of Orissa near the shore of the Bay of Bengal, stands the Great Sun Temple of Konarak, now in ruins. Built in the 13th Century by Narasimha I of the Eastern Ganga Dynasty, the temple once served as a landmark for the European sailors, who called it "The Black Pagoda" to distinguish it from "The White Pagoda" or the temple of Jagannatha at Puri. The temple with its sanctuary (deula) and the audience hall (Jagamohana) was designed as the mighty chariot of The Sun god with its twenty four magnificent wheels, drawn by seven horses. In front of the Jagamohana exists the remains of the Hall of dance (Natamandira) covered with its beautiful figures of dancers and musicians. The surface of the temple is adorned with many reliefs reflecting the life and culture of the people when it was built. Konarak, the greatest of Orissa's monuments, is also one of the most glorious achievements of the mankind as a whole. Since the remains were first studied early in the 19th century, a considerable amount of writing has appeared on Konarak. Now, however, for the first time, appears a monograph in which all aspects of Konarak are treated in depth-its religious significance, its history, its Architecture and its sculpture. The Book tries to depict, in all its details, the art and architecture of the temple in a broader Indian framework, as well as in the Context of regional developments. The monograph provides reinterpretations of already known facts, and is based on the latest research on the subject. The Appendices towards the end of the book provide interesting additional information on the subject. It is to be hoped that this comprehensive monograph may encourage art lovers throughout the world to come to Konarak and help them to appreciate the artistic significance of this priceless treasure in the right perspective. Printed Pages: 404 with 75 figures, 8 colours & 125 b/w illustrations. 100187

The Lingaraja Temple of Bhubaneswar: Art and Culture Legacy
Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts/Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8173053405 / 9788173053405; Hardcover; New; New; 
Built in the eleventh century, the temple of Li?garaja in Bhubaneswar is acclaimed as one of the finest temples of India. With its construction the Orissan temple style reached its mature phase and set the model for later temples to follow. The book, for the first time, makes an in-depth study of the temple in all its aspects such as its history, architecture, sculpture, mode of worship, festivals and organization of services, to understand the temple in its totality. The architectural features and religious aspects are described in the light of Orissan architectural lore and k?etra mahatmyas of Bhubaneswar.Originally conceived as a Siva temple, in course of time, it was transformed into a temple for both Siva and Vi??u. With perhaps the largest concentration of temples, ranging from the eleventh to the fifteenth centuries, the temple premises united the Saiva, Sakta and Vai??ava followers and fostered a spirit of harmony in the religious life of Orissa.Printed Pages: 101654
