Indian architecture encompasses multitude of expressions over the long span of history; and which is something that is still evolving. There is always room for new and absorbing ideas of doing things. A testimony to that is evident in the Indus Valley Civilization going back ever since 2600 – 1900 BC. There they were for your admiration: many uncharacteristically well-planned cities and houses.
India is renowned for its architectures. A good example is the world-famous Taj Mahal which stands out as one of the eight wonders of the world. Construction of the mausoleum was essentially completed in 1643, but work continued on other phases of the project for another ten years. The unequalled marvel is believed to have been completed in its entirety in 1653. The estimated cost today is pegged at seventy billion rupees or about nine-hundred-and-twenty million US dollars. The construction project took some twenty thousand artisans to complete it.
Temples construction also call for special architectural expertise, which is an area in which India excels. It is not only the portrayal of a certain charm and splendor, but also the science behind the structure itself. Most temples are located along magnetic wave lines of the earth which helps to increase positive energy surcharges. The copper plate called garbhagriha or moolasthan buried under the main idol absorbs and resonates this energy to its surroundings. Going to the temple then helps to develop a positive mind as well as the garnering of positive energies.
