Indian Architecture

Indian Architecture is characterized by a rich variety of styles, ranging from ancient cave and rock-cut temples to ornate Mughal palaces, and from traditional rural huts to modern skyscrapers. The architecture is heavily influenced by religion, culture, and history, and often incorporates intricate carvings, ornate patterns, and vibrant colors. One of the most famous examples of Indian architecture is the Taj Mahal, a mausoleum built in the 17th century in Agra by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his wife. The building is renowned for its exquisite white marble exterior, intricate carvings, and stunning gardens. In recent years, modern architects have also begun to incorporate elements of traditional Indian architecture into their designs, creating a unique fusion of old and new styles.
