About The Book:

Temples of Goa are not just ideal for spiritual practices but also repository of the artistic and cultural heritage of the Goan people. Though these shrines have been built strictly according to the rules laid down in Vastu Shastra, their exteriors often show western architectural influences in structural embellishments.

Kamla Mankekar has widely travelled across India and is a keen observer of architectural beauty. Her extensive travelling has exposed her to a wide variety of Hindu temples and shrines
