Abstract:Most of the mausoleums of Nagpur were constructed during the heyday of the Bhonsale dynasty. There are mausoleums dedicated to the memory of Raghuji I, founder of the Bhonsale House; Raja Bala (1816-17); Kashibai, wife of Raghuji II (1775-1816); and Raghuji III (1826-53). The temples of Nagpur show the prevalence of different temple-styles which filtered in: Orissan, Bengali, Maratha, and the Bhumija style of Malwa, Western India, and the Deccan. The Malhari-Martand temple complex at Hinganghat, built by a feudatory chief of Raghuji II, is profusely endowed with sculptures, both secular and religious.
