Abstract:

Abaneri is well known among the art historians and scholars for its magnificent art and architecture. Thus the temple of Harshatmata, originally dedicated to Vishnu, is in a ruined condition but it represents the haunting pristine glory of early Pratihara period (8-9 century AD). Since the discovery, it was referenced in several books and articles in a very sporadic manner except in the Encyclopaedia of Indian temple architecture. Now the time has come for a reappraisal of the site and a detailed study of its art and architecture in a holistic fashion for the benefit of readers and scholars. This was the goal in preparing this comprehensive monograph, which deals with the subject in five chapters - introduction, architecture, art, iconography and a catalogue which are self contained. The book is illustrated with plans and elevations of the temple and baori to facilitate the readers. The catalogue contains the detailed description of 258 sculptures and architectural members which are housed in the different museums of the state as well as on the site. A detail glossary of architectural and iconographic terms have also been provided in the book.
