Pressestimmen

"Michell's book has expanded our definition of the history of South Asian art and architecture. He raises many issues and probing questions, tantalizing us to pack our bags to explore the hinterland of India's south for ourselves...Michell's well-written text describes the monuments meticulously and makes lucid the historical developments."
