This book is an unavoidable companion to anyone planning to visit the architectural treasure house of Badami, Aihole and Pattadakal. Michell’s narration includes the serial order in which a visitor should move around the monuments, and the things they must look for. If the article of interest is located in a poorly illuminated niche, he indicates that a torch light would be required. The colour photographs accompanying the text are excellent in composure and truly do its job in bringing out the detail faithfully to the reader. The book is graced with a glossary, which is mandatory as the author has used many terms related to architecture and mythology, without pausing to explain it in mid-text. A good index and suggestions for further reading completes the list. Treat this book as a guide to the places mentioned, and it does a perfect job. It is also intended to be carried by the visitor, since the pages are of good quality paper having enough thickness to stand the travails of walking.
