Book Description
The architecture of india is rooted in its history, culture and the numerous religions worshipped by the people. However available only in the silpa-shastras theoretical and religions matters, and not the forms of existing buildings. A Systematic study of indian architecture and its principles only began in hte 19th century through the painstaking works of British scholars and Engineers using for the first time, the newly invented photography and the use of site plans. Fergusson`s two- volume history of indian and eastern Archtecture which appeared in 1876, was the result of such efforts, and was the first ever major publication of its kind. fergusson examined and classifed ancient Indian arcjotectire into buddist himalayan, dravidian and chalukyan styles, nothing that differences in architecture styles could be attributed to differences in religion.
