ANCIENT CITIES, SACRED SKIES:

COSMIC GEOMETRIES AND CITY PLANNING IN ANCIENT INDIA

Edited by J. MCKIM and L. M. GUJRAL

2000, xii+138pp., line drawings, b&w plates, gloss. index, ISBN: 81-7305-189-5, Rs. 900 (HB)


 

The seven technical papers presented here in this volume endeavour to re-create as fully as possible the mind-scape of the people as it effected the structures of their cities. The cities and landscapes described cover a time span of over 4,500 years from the Harappan city of Dholavira to the great empire of Vijayanagara kings. It also talks about the architects who designed some of the cosmic geometries of these cities.

It is hoped that this interdisciplinary study of the subject will facilitate a deeper comprehension of the relationship of the physio-cultural, economic dimensions and the planning and organization of specific territory.
