The temples are constructed under the direction of stapati-s, the traditional architects of the templesw. The details are in wellknown texts known as shilpa shastra-s such as kashyapa shilpa shastra-s. The well known scholar Dr. G. Gnanananda has rendered them into Kannada. There are also English translations pf parts of these shastra-s.
