Description for Rediscovering the Hindu Temple: The Sacred Architecture and Urbanism of India

Review

"[T]he book is a valuable resource for students and scholars of Indian art history, architecture and urban development. Interestingly, the tensions inherent in these two authors' different approaches actually reinforce the fact that we cannot understand the intricacies of the Hindu temple through a single lens. Moreover, this book highlights the human agencies involved in creating, shaping, and interpreting these sacred places - a dimension that is comonly overlooked in traditional architectural studies." Lisa N. Owen University of North Texas Religious Studies Review, 41: 1 (2015) "What this extraordinary book reveals is the power of a new attitude. Instead of looking at the Hindu temple with the eyes of historians or anthropologists, it espouses the mindset of the technician laying bare the workings of a well functioning machine. Bharne and Krusche do not use or teach traditional techniques of planning and building for restoration and conservation purposes but more importantly as disciplines to design modern buildings and cities. This study is not only relevant for the sub-continent but contributes importantly to the general re-evaluation of traditional values globally." Leon Krier Architect and Urbanist, Uzes, France "This book is a masterful study on the evolution, existence, continuity, transformation, and contemporary networking systems of Hindu temples. By examining their associated nature symbols, re-interpreting texts and mythologies, de-codifying their art and architecture from horizontality to verticality, examining their evolving sacred-scapes, and finally projecting their contemporary identities and functioning, it instigates fresh perspectives and deeper understandings of the inherent messages behind the complex cultural wholes of Hindu India." Rana P. B. Singh Professor of Cultural Geography and Heritage Studies, Banaras Hindu University, India
