Rediscovering the Hindu Temple: The Sacred Architecture and Urbanism of India

This volume examines the multifarious dimensions that constitute the workings of the Hindu temple as an architectural and urban built form. 11 chapters reflect on Hindu temples from multiple standpoints – tracing their elusive evolution from wayside shrines as well as canonization into classical objects; questioning the role of treatises containing their building rules; analyzing their prescribed proportions and orders; examining their presence in, and as, larger sacred habitats and ritualistic settings; and affirming their influential role in the contemporary Indian metropolis.
