Temples of Gopaksetra: A Regional History of Architecture and Sculpture in Central India AD 600-900
Willis, Michael
7 x 10", 144 pp., 142 b/w illustrations, 19 line drawings, 6 maps, bibliography, index, cloth, d.j., London, 1997.
This book provides the first in-depth examination of temple building in India between AD 600-900, a period of extraordinary creativity and inventiveness. While in many parts of northern India the monuments have been ruined or heavily reconstructed, in the Gwalior region, known in ancient times as Gopaksetra, numerous temples, shrines, sculptures and inscriptions have been preserved. This uniqueness makes Gwalior crucial for understanding the development of architecture, sculpture and iconography in northern India. Using an integrated method of analysis, Temples of Gopaksetra draws on the strengths of archaeological, textual, formal and cultural studies to create a comprehensive picture of these elaborate buildings. Illustrated by a wide range of photographs and meticulously prepared maps and plans, this book is a key reference work for the history of sacred architecture in India.
