Mountain Temples and Temple Mountains
Mountain Temples and Temple Mountains: Architecture, Religion, and Nature in the Central Himalayas is a 2019 book by art historian Nachiket Chanchani, associate professor at University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, that provides a complete historical survey of temple architecture in the Indian state of Uttarakhand (also known as Devabhumi, Sanskrit for "Land of the Gods"), and explores how the Central Himalaya region, home to many pilgrimage sites, came to acquire immense religious significance for Hindus. It is the first complete art historical and architectural survey of the under-studied region.
