Mandala by Design: The Courtyard of a Haveli Temple in Jaipur

Title:Mandala by Design: The Courtyard of a Haveli Temple in Jaipur
Author:Sachdev, Vibhuti
Enumeration:Vol. 52 Issue no. 4; June 2001, p. 28-41
Abstract:A design tool central to traditional Indian architecture is the Vastu Purusha Mandala. Here, the courtyard of a haveli temple in Jaipur is analysed using the fundamental principles of this mandala, in order to demonstrate how an assimilation of even one aspect of the theory of architecture can unleash communication with the building and can transform our reading of it.
