In The Present Work An Attempt Has Been Made To Study The Major Artistic Characteristics Of Extant Bhumija Temples Of Madhya Pradesh. The Architectural Features Have Been Compared With Those Of The Prescribed Textual Norms. Further The Impacts Of This Popular Art Tradition Of Malwa Over The Contemporary Art Of Neighbouring Regions Like Maharashtra And Rajasthan Etc. Have Also Been Discussed. It May Not Be Out Of Place To Mention That During The Survey Of Monuments Of Good Number Of Brahamanical Images Were Also Noticed Which Are Either Intact With The Original Monuments Or Shifted To Different Museums. To Bring A Few Of Them Into The Notice Of Scholars A Brief Inconographical Note Was Also Prepared Which Has Been Added With The Text As Second Part. It Will Definitely Help The Scholars To Understand The Development Of Plastic Art Traditions Under The Paramaras Who Were Basically The Original Patrons Of Raising Bhumija Temples In Malwa.
