The book incorporates an analysis of the architectural aspects of the historical temples of Assam. Assam was known to the rest of India since the Epicdays and was impued by its art, culture and religious beliefs. But due to its extreme climatic condition and natural calamities, all of the mediaeval monuments upto 12th century A.D. were reduced to heaps of ruins and rubbles. In spite of this, the author has spared no pains to examine whatever was available in situ and has come out successful in making an objective analysis of the ancient architectural tradition from artistic as well as structural points of view. In doing so he has with logical consistency conjectured the style, stature and chronology of the temples.
