This volume records the fascinating history of the growth and development of Bengal Temples. No systematic enquiry has been made in this important field which remained neglected. This study thus fills up an important gap of the history of Indian Art and Architecture. The author traces not only architectural evolution of the temple architecture but gives a comprehensive survey of the topics which inspired temple-building activities, influence on the architecture of Farther India and Nepal, fresco paintings and terracotta works as well as textual materials on the traditional architecture of Bengal. Moreover, there is a full analysis of socio-religious and political influences which determine the stylistic evolution of the temples of Bengal. The book is thus an important and original work supported by excellent illustrations and map. Bengal Temples contain a brilliant record of the history and culture of this region and speak directly of the art and architectural history they represent. Any one who will consult the book will embark upon some rewarding travel in time and will sense the tone and atmosphere of the cultural history of Bengal. Printed Pages: 100 with 39 b/w illustrations and 1 map.
