Ajitagama and Rauravagama, critically edited in the same series (above N° 24 et 18) by Pandit N.R. Bhatt are two saiva treatises pertaining to the saivasiddhanta school. Like several other agamas of the saivasiddhanta they comprise important and much detailed presentation of the architecture of siva temples together with that of their pavilions, gopuras, etc. In this book those chapters are analysed and their terminology is systematically studied. Thus the author gives a first tableau of the Indian theory of architecture, elaborated in South India since the 7th-8th c. on the basis of Pallava temples and further on at the Col?a period. The book comprises a Sanskrit-French glossary and several tables dealing with moulurated compositions.
