Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book titled Temples of the Indus contains table of contents, acknowledgment, and list of illustrations. In Pakistan's northwest a sequence of temples built between the sixth and the tenth centuries provides a missing chapter in the evolution of the Hindu temple in South Asia. Combining some elements from Buddhist architecture in Gandharā with the symbolically powerful curvilinear Nagara tower formulated in the early post-Gupta period, this group stands as an independent school of that pan-Indic form, offering new evidence for its creation and original variations in the four centuries of its existence.

Keywords: Buddhist architecture; Hindu temple; South Asia
