ARTH 212
Cities and Temples in Ancient India
Professor Michael Meister
Time: TR 10:30-12
Course Description

The wooden architecture of ancient India's cities is represented in relief carvings from Buddhist religious monuments of the early centuries
A.D. and replicated in remarkable excavated cave cathedrals.  This course will trace that architectural tradition, its transformation into a
symbolic vocabulary for a new structure,  the Hindu temple, and the development of the temple in India from ca. 500-1500 A.D.
