The Kalamukha temples in Karnataka are associated with the Lakulasaiva movement especially the beliefs and practices of the Kalamukha Saivites and the Jakka?acari style of temple in Kamataka.This volume is a study of two of the best examples of Kalamukha shrines in the region. It focuses on the Somanathesvara Temple at Hara?aha??i and Ka?ambesvara Temple at Ra??iha??i, splendid examples of conversion of single-cell shrines into triple sancta.With numerous illustrations of the temples including their plans and sculptures and referring to and quoting from the Agamas, the Pura?as and other ancient works, it studies the architecture of the temples along with their history, the general plans of the temples, their interior including pillars, lintel and entrances, their external structure, and their iconography, particularly the main deities in the temples. It makes a unique effort to study the inscriptions associated with the temples which are in Kannada interlaced with Sanskrit verses and containing Sanskrit words, presenting their Roman transliteration and translation into English. The inscriptions include one on renovation of Somesvara Temple by King Joma (CE 1181), one on the foundation of a Temple of Dasdvara laid by Dasiraja (CE 1188) and one that eulogizes the Kadambas and minister Soma (CE 1144).Printed Pages: 675.
