The Mayamata is a Vastusastra, that is to says a ítreatise on dwelling and as such it deals with all the facets of godsí temple dwellings, from the choice of a site to the iconography of temple walls. It contains many precise descriptions of villages and towns as of temples, houses, mansions and palaces. It gives indications for the selection of a proper orientation, of right dimension and of appropriate building materials. It intends to be a manual for the architect and a guide-book for the layman. Well thought of by the traditional architects (sthapati-s) of South India, this treatise is of interest at a time when technical traditions, in all fields are being scrutinized for their possible modern application. The Mayamata has so for been translated into Tamil and into French. The present English version is based upon the edition, with French trans-lation, previously published by Dr. Bruno Dagens in the Publication Series of the French Institute of Indology (Pon-dicherry). Printed Pages: 476.
