P.K. Acharya's An Encyclopaedia of Hindu Architecture is a comprehensive work on the technical terminology, now obsolete but then in vogue, of the creators of such epics in stone as those of Sanchi and Konark during the ancient and medieval periods of Indian history. It contains about three thousand terms culled, with indefatigable industry spread over a long span of years, from ancient architectural treatises-Manasara, and Vastu-Sastras-, Agamas, Puranas, Brahmanas, Sutras, epics, literary works, epigraphical records and manuscripts in obscure scripts. The terms are arranged in the order of Sanskrit alphabet.

A brief rendering in English followed by extensive quotations from various sources and supplemented by line drawings and photographs elucidate every aspect of the term, leaving no room for ambiguity. Two appendices, one giving a sketch of Sanskrit treatises on architecture and the other furnishing a list of historical architects with short notes on their works, are added.

This monumental work has remained a standard treatise of reference since its publication in 1946 for all connected with architecture.
