Historical Monuments - Ancient Structures

Title:Historical Monuments - Ancient Structures
Author:Jamkhedkar, A.P.
Enumeration:Vol. 37 Issue no. 1, p. 25-36
Abstract:The history of religious architecture in Maharashtra, in its early phases is dominated by rock-cut architecture. Along with other regions, Maharashtra came under the influence of the Guptas, and this led to the development of structural stone architecture in Maharashtra. There are examples of wooden and brick architecture also. But a forceful attempt towards erecting structural temples was made only under the patronage of later Chalukyas, Yadavas, and Shilaharas. A survey of early religious architecture is given with a discussion of the following subjects: Pre-Yadava Structural Temples at Ramtek, Early Brick Temples, Post-Rashtrakuta Architecture, Shilahara Temple at Khidrapur, and Step-Wells and Memorial Stones.
