D. Dayalan's present work on the Cave-temples in the regions of the Pandya, Muttaraiya, Atiyaman and Ay dynasties in Tamil Nadu and Kerala is in a broad sense the continuation of the work carried out by Sh. K.R. Srinivasan on the rock-cut architecture of the Pallava times. This volume is an outcome of the meticulous study of all the cave-temples in the respective regions by the author and is, in fact, a first hand and authentic documentation of the art and architectural feature of the rock excavations in southern Tamil Nadu and a part of Kerala. He has made systematic analysis of all relevant aspects and also put in use the modern technologies for documentation and data collection. The author deserves to be congratulated for producing such a brilliant volume which will be useful to the specialist, students as well as lay readers.
