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 surveys early temples in Upper Dravidadesa, particularly those of the Calukyas of Badami and the Vengi and the Rastrakutas of Malkhed. Other dynasties discussed are the Alupas, Telugu - Codas and Vaidumbas, Gangas, Nolambas, Santaras and the early Hoysalas. Arranged uniformly as Part I, the chapters are lavishly illustrated. Contributors are: K.V. Soundara Rajan, Caral Radcliffe Bolon, H. Sarkar and M.A. Dhaky. Printed Pages: 249 with 656 b/w photographs.
