About the book:

This study deals with a special form of the Sikhara temple with an ambulatory surrounding the cella. This temple design is common in Bengal and the Kathmandu Valley, and shows a great variety among th two two local traditions. The subject matter draws on my longstanding interest, which spans several decades. I considered certain aspects of this temple design in two earlier publications on Nepalese temples.
