The aim of the Encyclopaedia, sponsored by the American Institute of Indian Studies, is to survey and organise by style, with technical descriptions, the vast body of monuments constructed between c. AD 400 and 18th centuries in India to serve India`s symbolic and religious needs. Each volume is divided into Parts delineating different regions, stylistic evolutions or periods. Each part has two different sections (books) devoted to text and illustrations. This part covers temples in lower south India from early beginings through temples of Cholas and Pandyas, Muttaraiyars, Irrukavels, Paluvettaraiyars, and other dynasties of the lower south. Arranged by region and dynasty, the chapters also suggest something of the nature of local idioms and regional artistic styles, and are lavishly illustrated with photographs and drawings. Contributors to this Part are K.R. Srinivasan, K.V. Soundara Rajan, M.A. Dhaky and H. Sarkar. Printed Pages: 361 with 432 b/w photographs.
