Younger describes the daily and festival worship of the only Hindu temple in India where Shiva in his dancing form is the primary object of worship. He analyses the history revealed in the architecture of the buildings and the 300 inscriptions on the temple walls, and in the process tries to understand the multifaceted role of the temple in Indian life. His study paints a vivid portrait of the living religion of South India.
