Amid the voluminous scholarly tomes and glossy, expensive coffe-table books on Indian temples and architecture, Devalaya is an exception, rendering something beyond wry technical, architectural details and something more than pretty pictures with little information. The book talks not just about the history and architecture of temples, but also of the myths and legends sorrounding them, their rituals and festivals and everything that is part of these vibrant, colourful institutions.
