Sanctuaires Rupestres de l' Inde du Sud, par P.Z. Pattabiramin

Softcover, 2 volumes, illustrations en bn, Pondicherry 1971, 1975, neuf

The present publication presents a series of photographs of caves in South India that were transformed in the olden days into shrines or temples. It tries to complete the research already published on the subject and to inform archeologists outside of India about the interest of these cave-temples. These cave-temples bear testimony to the practice of converting caves into shrines not only prior to the appearance of constructed temples but also at much later periods. The first volume is devoted to the study of the cave-temples of Andhra Pradesh (districts of Krishna, Guntur and Nellur); the second presents sites situated in Tamil Nadu (districts of North Arcot, Cengalpattu, South Arcot, Salem, Tiruccirappalli, Ramanathapuram, Madurai, Tirunelveli and Kanniyakumari) as well as in Kerala (districts of Trivandrum, Quilon, Kottayam, Aleppey, Ernakulam, Trichur and Palghat). The text and captions are in French.
