Gods and Men -- Sacred Architecture and Art

Title:Gods and Men -- Sacred Architecture and Art
Author:Michell, George
Enumeration:Vol. 33 Issue no. 4, p. 76-104
Abstract:In and around Vijayanagara are temples of the pre-Vijayanagara and Vijayanagara periods. The pre-Vijayanagara monuments are mostly Shaivite shrines in stone dating to the 9th-10th centuries, and in late Chalukyan or Kadamba style. In the Vijayanagara period, the scale of temple building increased, and the temple complexes included specific elements such as gateways, columned halls, colonnades, and sanctuaries. The article discusses these architectural features, and the sculptures in the Virupaksha, Krishna, Venkateshvara, Pattabhirama, Vitthala, and Hazara Rama temples.
