Aha ;-) Whata flowery language. #justsaying Image
I wonder who the audience for the book are. "loud rituals", "pouring clarified butter into flames" "pecking order" "political power".hmm.
Such rituals exist even today-political or non political, including clarified butter or not. Suffice to say nothing specific to Kings. #AKST Image
Wonder if the writer has seen anything abt temples of Talakadu, hundreds of years before Chalukyas.
If temporary altars are expensive & difficult undertakings even for kings, were structural and permanent temples a cheaper alternative? Need comnon sense before writing!

Drove from #Bangalore to #Hospet, a distance of 350 km, on March 25th to see the #Hampi ruins. Instead of going back via Chitradurga, turned onto NH 150A from NH 48 at Hiriyur. The Hiriyur - Hospet stretch has much less traffic compared to Chitradurga-Hospet. #IndiaRoadTrip
Soon after crossing Hiriyur en route to #Hospet (near #Hampi), the landscape transformed itself dramatically. There were beautiful craggy hills and fields with the characteristic red soil of the region, with moderate to scanty vegetation. #IndiaRoadTrip
The #Hiriyur to #Hospet route goes close to #Bellary (now #Ballary), w/ its many mines of the best quality iron. Saw trucks transporting iron ore plying on this route. Incidentally, Bellary has often been in the news for rampant illegal mining & export of iron ore. #IndiaRoadTrip
