Abstract:The classicism that permeated all schisms in art coincided with the rule of the imperial Guptas (c. AD 320-475) when art-forms while paraphrasing different influences, manifested a certain "Indianness" which was to provide an incentive for subsequent styles and a measure for evaluation. The stupas at Kahujo Daro or Mirpur Khas in Sind, Devnimori in Gujarat, and Kanheri in Maharashtra are discussed in this article. The main features, architectural styles, and main sculptures are also discussed.
