PREFACE

He has mentioned that the temples in North Bihar follow several types from the constituents of the simplest form of temples to more artistic and complicated styles. He has pointed out that a temple in Chapra looks remarkably like a church. A rather modern temple at Harinagar in Champaran district, which Dr. Spooner does not mention, is also built almost like a church with a steeple. This style has been followed at other places also. Some temples in North Bihar are with domes.

A few temples again show a strong Indo-Islamic influence. All this shows that the architecture or the temple types in Bihar have had a comparative freedom from the conventional mode and vision of the temples of North India. The Jain temples scattered over various places in Bihar are remarkable specimens. They, however, follow the same pattern of the Jain temples in other parts of India. They are highly decorative and conventional.
