Hinduism
• Polytheistic religion (worship many gods and
goddesses)
• Goal is to achieve moksa--by praying,
worshipping (darsana) and giving offering to gods
• Each god has a female companion and rides on
vehicle such as bull (Nandi), lion, goose; each
holds some attributes (Siva: tridents and Vishnu:
conch shell and wheel)
Triad
• Brahma-God of Creator
• Vishnu-God of Preserver (has many incarnations
such as Rama and Krishna)
• Shiva-God of Destroyer (also the protector of
animals)
• Devi-goddess (e.g., Laksmi (“Good Fortune”) and
Parvati); symbolizing beauty, benevolent, and
wealth as well as power and wrath
3.25 Shiva as Nataraja, Lord of the Dance, Chola, 11-12th C
Vastu-purusa mandala
• A myth explains the symbolic diagram (mandala): the
gods in seeking to impose order on chaos, forced the
primeval man, Purusa, into a square grid, the vastu-purusa
mandala, whose basic unit is the square pada
• Hindu temple is the dwelling of the gods. It is based on the
grid systems of 64 (8x8) and 81 (9x9) squares.
• Square is the prefect shape for the ground plan.
• Priests perform ritual of consecrations which connect
between sexual rites and fertility in Hindu architecture.
Hindu temples
• The temple is a holy site (tirtha), where they practitioners can perform
circumambulation (pradaksina). They also perform the pious act of
gazing at the deity (darsan) and offering prayers, flowers and food
(puja). The temple is never a meeting place for a congregation, but it
came to be a focal point of the community.
• The heart of the temple is the dark hall called garbha grha (womb
hall), where the most important icon is placed. It is the most important
area.
• Pillared halls (mandapa) and porticos were added to the garbha grha,
which was surmounted with a tower (sikhara)--center of the universe
(axis mundi).
Vastu-purusa mandala
Media and ornaments
• Many varieties: wood, brick, terracotta, and
variety of stone (e.g., schist, chlorite,
marble)
• Temples required to be heavily ornamented
(things lacking in ornament were
considered imperfect or incomplete.
• Motifs: narrative reliefs, animal motifs,
floral and vegetation motifs.
