From the evidence contained in the creative literature, texts and manuals, sculptural reliefs, architectural monuments, inscriptional and epigraphical records etc., it obvious that music flourished at all levels of the society in India, and also that each region was culturally related to other regions, far and near.
The main thrust of the present study has been to find out how far music attained the present forms in other non-performing art-forms like sculpture, painting etc., for which the temples are the main sources; and also to trace if any continuous link could be established to the development of music and musicology down the ages.
