Presents a comprehensive picture of the chronologically uninterrupted chain of extant south Indian temples, explaining the niceties of their architecture, the many subtle variations in style and their evolution over the years.

The temple is the most significant monument of Indian architecture as it sums up and represents the subtle values of Indian culture. Elaboration's of the temple structure followed the firm establishment of image worship and the accompanying development of the ritual, which took time to crystallize. The evolution of different architectural forms in north, south and other parts of India was a later development.
