Transformation of forms of Indian temples takes place through a dual process - time as well as space. These two patterns of transformation, through time and (while representing time) in space, reflect one another closely. Both are processes of emergence, expansion and proliferation which simultaneously imply differentiation and fusion, growth from and dissolution into unity.One of the richest traditions of temple building that India has produced took shape in the seventh century CE, centred in what is now the state of Kamataka, and lasted until the thirteenth century CE. This was one of the two main branches of Dravi?a or "southern" temples architecture, giving rise to such famous temples as the Virupak?a, Pa??a?akal, the Kailasa, Ellora and the Hoysa?esvara and Halebi?. These temples are analysed, along with more than 250 other buildings, in this monumental study that, for the first time, explains the Kar?ata Dravi?a tradition as one continuous, coherent development. The present volume shows how to look at these great monuments and makes their complex architecture accessible. It is clearly shown how the formal structure of a temple makes concrete the idea of manifestation, of the transmutation of the eternal and infinite into the shifting multiplicity of existence, the reabsorption of all things into the limitless unity from which they have come.Printed Pages: 635.
