Natyashastra (theatrics and dramaturgy)Source: Shodhganga: The significance of the mūla-beras (natya)
The South Indian temples, with their characteristic tiered vimāna shrines, major and minor, their axial and peripheral maṇḍapa adjuncts, which are flat roofed halls, and the towering gopura entrances, form a distinct class by themselves as distinguished from the North Indian temples.
Natyashastra (नाट्यशास्त्र, nāṭyaśāstra) refers to both the ancient Indian tradition (śāstra) of performing arts, (nāṭya, e.g., theatrics, drama, dance, music), as well as the name of a Sanskrit work dealing with these subjects. It also teaches the rules for composing dramatic plays (nataka) and poetic works (kavya).
