Description

This study describes the daily and festival worship of the only Hindu temple in India where Shiva in his dancing form is the primary object of worship. It analyzes the history revealed in the architecture of the building and the 300 inscriptions on the temple walls, and in the process tries to understand the multifaceted role of the temple in Indian life. The work paints a vivid portrait of the living religion of South India.show more
