Relationship Between Temple Architecture and Cosmology

I have heard from a South Indian Saivite that the Siva temples model Siva's
abode of Kailasa.
Is this a common theme that temples of a particular Deity represent the
abode of the particular Deity, or different parts of the cosmology
correspond to structures within a temple? Are there papers or
books on this subject? Or do you know people who have studied it?
Thank you for your help.
