The present theme has two specific purposes of establishing the importance that a music compositions could envelope in projecting the underlined relation of music and temples. The other purpose was that though a composition is meant to express the devotional fervour in a bhakta, the kshetra kritis analyzed so far have brought out a theme of preserving the historical data of a temple-through music compositions. Whereas an ordinary kriti has the sole purpose of praising the glory of the God or the Goddesses, kshetra Kritis had the twin purpose of the preserving for posterity the data of a temple and the devotional theme of the master piece. Therefore, the music world are beholden to the great composers for their excellent kshetra kritis-but for them the importance of music in recreating the historical impulse would have been lost.
