Shelter has been one of mankind’s most basic physiological needs. At least that’s what it started out as at the beginning of time. From dwelling in caves to carving out temples in mountains, man has redefined shelter with every passing era. Though the underlying fundamental of any monument is to serve some sort of function, great architecture is always fueled by imagination. India’s architecture is built on that very imagination and is a fascinating fusion of both art and science.
From strategically placed astronomy towers to impressive and awe-inspiring tombs, Indian architecture has pushed the limits of engineering and design. Sanrachna explores these architectural wonders and how the makers of these marvels made them without the aid of modern mechanics and machinery. With an immensely astute sense of engineering, the architects could construct fortresses that have stood the ravages of time, unshaken by its changes. Join our host Vaibhavi Updhyaya as she travels through the country discovering the fascinating stories behind India’s outstanding monuments and their architecture. Sanrachna will leave you in awe of the past and its ability to do what we can’t, even with our modern tools.
