Buddhist And Hindu Architecture In India by Satish Grover
Book Summary:

The book is intended to provide sufficient reading for the student of architecture to be able to probe more detailed writings on the subject with sufficient confidence; to break down the cynicism of the practising modern Indian architect to the countrys architectural heritage and to arm the more inquisitively inclined tourist of India with sufficient background material to appreciate the essence of Indian architecture. To achieve the above it has been necessary to take some liberties from the classic way of writing a book on historical architecture. In this as far as possible In spite of the poor communication systems of the past every human action in one part of the world is somehow derived from another and interconnected with yet another. A study of history is meaningful only because it is so. The same principle is applicable to the history of architecture.
