TEMPLE ARCHITECTURE AND ART OF THE EARLY CHALUKYAS: BADAMI, MAHAKUTA, AIHOLE, PATTADAKAL. George Michell. Niyogi Books, New Delhi, 2014. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Antique Collectors' Club, Easthampton. 256 pp. with 242 ills. (195 col.). 30 x 23 cm. ISBN 9789383098330 In English.
Publisher's description: The temples of the Early Chalukyas, dating from the 6th to 8th centuries, are unrivaled in all of India for their comparatively early date and unusually complete condition, the remarkable juxtaposition of their different constructional techniques and building styles, and for the sheer beauty of their figural and decorative carvings. In spite of their appeal and outstanding historical significance, these monuments have until now lacked an adequate publication. This volume is the first to fully describe and illustrate the architecture and art of the Early Chalukya temples in Badami, and nearby Mahakuta, Aihole and Pattadakal, all situated on or near to the Malprabha River in central Karnataka. Michell's definitive text is complemented by forty of his measured drawings, which constitute the most thorough graphic documentation ever undertaken. These are accompanied by more than 150 splendid, newly commissioned photographs by Surendra Kumar.
