Obtaining AIIS Photographs

The archive facility at the University of Pennsylvania is not able to supply photographic prints. Prints from the AIIS negatives, however can be requested directly from the Institute: The Center for Art & Archaeology 22, Sector-32, Institutional Area Gurgaon-122 001 Haryana Telephone: 91-124-2381424 or 91-124-2381536 Fax: 91-124-2380843 e-mail: caa.archives@aiis.org.in Contact: Dr. Vandana Sinha, Director (Academic)

The material is organized first by chronological periods, then by state, and finally by site name. However, small thumbnail images are also supplied which are filed by site name which is how Art Historians often know the site rather than by either date or location. The thumbnail images are located in the file cabinets located on the western wall.

One of the very impressive byproducts of this effort is the multivolume summary work the Encyclopaedia of Indian temple architecture edited by Michael W. Meister (Philadelphia : American Institute of Indian Studies and the University of Pennsylvania Press, 1983-) : Location: South Asia Reference NA6001 .E52 1983.
