Temple Architecture Design

In ancient India, a high standard temple architecture was developed in almost all the regions. The distinctive architectural style of the construction of the temple in different parts was the result of geographical, climate, ethnic, caste, historical and linguistic diversity. Ancient Indian temples have been classified into three broad categories. This classification is based on various architectural styles employed in temples. Three main styles of temple architecture are Nagra or northern style, Dravid or Southern style and fasara or mixed style. But at the same time there are some regional styles of Bengal, Kerala and Himalayan areas.

It is believed that the essence of the Hindu temple is evolved from the ideology that all things are one and everything is involved. According to Indian philosophy, the purpose of human life is to have four essential and important principles – the search for wealth and prosperity; Work – sex and fun; Religion – moral life and virtues; And moksha – self-knowledge and realization. Mathematically designed spaces, complex artwork, decorative and carved pillars and statues of Hindu temples explain such philosophy and respect. In the middle of the temple, there can be no empty space, usually beneath the deity, or even above the deity, a complex concept of man or a Purusha means that any form without a universal principle, consciousness, cosmic man or self, ubiquitous and All things attach together Hindu temples suggest contemplation, promotion and more purification of mind and indicate the process of self-realization in devotees; However, the process of selection is abandoned at a personal devotee’s convention.
