This part studies the period of the Vijayanagara empire during the time in which the Sangama, Tuluva and Aravidu kings ruled over a substantial portion of Karnata, Andhra and Tamilndau. The volume begins with temple architecture in the decades immediately preceding the establishment of the Vijayanagara empire in the middle of the fourteenth century, and continues with the study of religious monuments of the lesser dynasties which succeeded Vijayanagara in Karnata during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
