The present study is an in depth approach to unravel the development of temple architecture in the region of Bangalore and Kolar Districts of southern Karnataka. The area selected for this study comprises of the present Bangalore and Kolar Districts, which historically and culturally was a meeting place of the Kannada, Tamil and Telugu cultures.

During the period extending from about 500A.D to the end of 1700 A.D, in spite of political fluctuations that existed in this region, uninterrupted temple building activity  prevailed in the region. This artistic tradition imbibed the characteristic features of the Karnataka and Tamil idioms as practiced by the Rastrakutas and the Gangas on the one side and the Pallavas and the Cholas on the other. The location of this area was a buffer region, politically and culturally also. Moreover Kolar region was the connecting link for all the cultural, commercial and political activities between Karnataka and Tamilnadu.
