Title:Temples in Kutch: Symphony in Stone The Arts of Kutch, edited by Christopher W. London,
Author:Dhaky, M.A.
Enumeration:Vol. 51-4, p. 18-29
Abstract:The Kutch territory of Gujarat State possesses temples of two periods, the earlier were built when the Sama dynasty ruled from late ninth century to 950 CE. These are in Maha-Gurjara style that prevailed in lower Rajasthan and upper Gujarat.The Sama buildings are located at Majal, Kanthkot, Kerakot, and Kotai. Those of the succeeding period, when Kutch became part of the Solanki kingdom, are in Maru-Gurjara style. These are at Bhadresvara (Bhadesvara; transitional style), Manjal (Vadi Medi), and Bhadresvara (Jain temple). The temples at Kerakot and Kotai, though partly ruined, are very elegantly shaped as well as well-decorated. They are among the few surviving notable buildings of their age.
