Architecture of India

Sanchi Torana, Madhya Pradesh, IndiaOne definition of a great civilization is the magnificence of its architectural legacy, and India is surely among the foremost.  The country is dotted with the remains of ages gone by, many world famous like the Taj and Qutab Minar, and some still cloaked in obscurity, off the tourist circuit, waiting to be 'discovered', but architectural gems nevertheless.

Architecture of India - is an attempt to present the Indian architecture for what it is: an intelligent, innovative response to local conditions.
