Title Review

The book discusses the major Sanskrit architectural texts of the past and the scholarly articles of modern writers exploring salient features of ancient Indian architecture. It focuses on some of the popular themes in the Sanskirt texts on architecture, especially those related to construction of residential buildings and temples. It acquaints the readers with the rich heritage of Indian vastushastra. Referring to the Puranans among other sources, it throws light on various facets of ancient Indian architecture: use of materials like stone wood for construction, site selection, site planning and town planning, mandapa architecture, use of plaster and lime, sculptural representations on architecture.
