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. Part 3 in two binds, as was the case with the earlier two parts, surveys the temples (and associated structures) in different provinces of the north Indian mega-territory, built under the political aegis of the then ruling various provincial--principal, and subordinate--dynasties. Among these, the more notable were the Cahamanas of Sakambhari and of Naddula, and Solankis of Anahil-lapataka in western India; also, the Kalacuris of Cedidesa olim Dahaladesa, Candellas of Jejakabhukti, and Kacchapaghatas of Gopagiri in central India, and the Somavamsis of Kalingadesa in eastern India.The text running in 21 chapters, has been copiously illustrated with drawings (ground plans and base-elevations) and adequate number of photographs as in all previous parts. Printed Pages: 426 with 913 b/w photographs.
