Discover India’s multi-faceted history and culture through architecture, perhaps her single most glorious legacy. From 5000-year-old archaeological sites to rock cut cave temples, from Persian-influenced Mughal palaces to subterranean step wells, India has witnessed a variety of architectural styles emerge over the course of its history. Magnificent stone sculptures, which often formed an integral part of buildings, were a significant part of documenting life as well as narrating mythology. With a colonial past, there are many architectural gems in India which form a precious part of the heritage, as do the more modern post-independence buildings.
Join our passionate subject experts to delve deeper into these feats of architecture and engineering, and the fascinating stories behind them.
