Indian philosophy and tradition played a significant role in conceiving and shaping the monuments and their art in India. Discuss.

India’s monuments and their art were conceptualised and shaped in large part by Indian philosophy and tradition. Any building, structure, or location that is significant or interesting historically may serve as the monument. Following are some discussion points from this source:

  2. The Asokan Pillar and the Stupas, which display Buddhist teachings, stories, and symbols, were influenced by Buddhist philosophy.
  3. Hindu temple architecture began to change after the Gupta era. Hindu temples are built primarily in the three unique architectural styles of Nagara, Vesara, and Dravida, and their walls are decorated with sculptures drawn from Hindu epics and mythology.
  4. Along with the Jinas, the Jain temples also have carvings of gods and goddesses, yaksa, yakshi, and worshippers.
  5. It was customary for the temple to serve as the hub of community communication in a hamlet throughout the Pallava and Chola eras.
  6. The Vedic Age saw the emergence of the Varna system, which had a significant impact on Indian philosophy and culture. This tradition was also visible in how things were conceptualised and led to the structural development of cities.
