This book gives a detailed analysis of architectural designs found in Indian temples built in Karnataka in the period 1000-1300 AD, and a view on the architectural features common in all sophisticated temples built in medieval India. Indian temples are decorated with architecture in an ingenious way not found elsewhere in the world, and in medieval Karnataka that special use of architecture reached a climax. Both text and illustrations are a complete and unabridged publication of a Ph.-D.-thesis submitted at Leiden University (Leiden, The Netherlands) in 2003. Printed Pages: 293 with 201 b/w plates. 031327

2 Gerard Foekema
Calukya Architecture: Medieval temples of northern Karnataka built during the rule of the Calukya of Kalyana and thereafter, AD 1000-1300, 3 Vols.
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8121510708 / 9788121510707; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
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. 023652
