The Mayamatam is a vaastushastra, i.e. treatise on dwelling and as such it deals with all the facets of gods' and men's dwellings, from the choice of the site to the iconography of the temple walls. It contains numerous and precise descriptions of the villages and towns as well as of the temples, houses, mansions and palaces. It gives indications for the selections of a proper orientation, right dimensions, and appropriate materials. Well thought of by traditional architects (sthapatis) of South India, the treatise is of great interest at a time when technical traditions, in all fields, are being scrutinized for their possible modern application.Shri Krishna Jugnu hails from Chittor in Rajasthan and has studied and researched extensively on varied subjects like history, archeology, art, architecture, education, religion and culture.
