The work in two volumes presents a comprehensive study of the famous sun temple of Konarak. The Temple which also finds a prominent place in the UNESCO’S list of WORLD HERITAGE MONUMENTS is one of the glorious artistic triumphs of mankind. For the first time appears a work in which all aspects of Konarak are treated in depth-its religious significance, its history, its architecture and its sculpture.
The book tries to depict, in all its details, the art and architecture of the temple in a broader Indian framework, as well as in the context of regional developments. The monograph provides reinterpretations of already known facts, and is based on the latest research on the subject. It is to be hoped that this comprehensive monograph may encourage art lovers throughout the world to come to Konarak.
