1 J. Mckim Malville & L.M. Gujral (Eds)
Ancient Cities, Sacred Skies: Cosmic Geometries and City Planning in Ancient India
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2000; 8173051895 / 9788173051890; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The essays in the volume explore the symbolic Geometry which helped organise the integrated life of traditional cities. Geometries that were cosmic in intent intertwined the three traditional realms of the universe, the celestial macrocosm, the mesocosm, and human microcosm. In these cities, people were not isolated from the large universe. Their lives acquired a certain cosmic meaning by the geometrical structures of the cities they inhabited. The seven technical papers in the volume endeavour to re-create as fully as possible the mind-scape of the people as it effected the structures of their cities. The cities and landscapes described cover a time span of over 4,500 years from the Harappan city of Dholavira to the great empire of Vijayanagara. Kings and architects intentionally designed some of the cosmic geometries of these cities. Recent discoveries of astronomical alignments in Vijayanagara, Varanasi, and Chitrakuta are presented. These discoveries result partly from precise measurement by the Global Positioning System (GPS) of satellites. The north-south axis of Vijayanagara is revealed as the most accurate astronomical alignment that has yet been found in the ancient world. It is hoped that this interdisciplinary study of the subject will facilitate a deeper comprehension of the relationship of the physico-cultural, economic dimensions, and the planning and organisation of specific territory.Printed Pages: 150 with 51 figures & 46 halftone illustrations. 100180

2 Francoise LíHernault & Lalit M. Gujral
The Iconography of the Brahadisvara Temple
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2002; 9788143052200; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The programme Ksetra Sampada or regional heritage of the Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts (IGNCA) envisages studies of specific cultural areas taking into account the process of interlocking devotional, artistic, geographical and social aspects. One area identified for such an integrated study was Tanjavur in South India. In collaboration with Ecole Francaise D'Extreme - Orient (EFEO), Pondicherry, IGNCA launched a comprehensive project to investigate the multi-layered and multi-dimensional personality of the Brhadisvara temple at Tanjavur. This in-depth study of the identified area and monument resulted in the publication of Tanjavur Brhadisvara: An Architectural Study, by Pierre Pichard, in 1995. One of the inter-related modules of the project coordinated by Dr. R. Nagaswamy, includes iconographical study of sculptures, stone reliefs, bronze images amd mural paintings. Accordingly, Dr. Francoise L'Hemault of EFEO undertook the task of photo documentation of the icons of the Brhadisvara temple. She completed the assignment in 1994, and based on nearly 600 photographs of the icons, she prepared this monograph as a catalogue for the identification of the iconographical forms on the Brhadisvara temple. This monograph is the second in the series of studies of Brhadisvara undertaken by the IGNCA. It sheds illuminating light on the iconographical forms of the two capital sites of the Cholas, viz., Tanjavur and Gangaikondacholapuram. Printed Pages: 80 with 12 figures & 167 halftone illustrations. 100177
