This thesis presents an analysis of the Vaişņava temple movement of the Gupta age. The term "temple movement" is used here to denote the spread of a uniform temple type throughout the Gupta Empire at the time when the Gupta power was at its apex. Special reference will be made to the political aspects of the movement: i.e., the promotion of kingship and the celebration of the Gupta Empire.
