Ahmedabad (Gujarat) is a city with a rich history of architecture. Ever since it came into existence over 600 years ago, it has been a melting pot of various cultures. The city’s diverse traditions, languages and religion are a proof of this. The rich architectural heritage of Ahmedabad, comprising a fort, many mosques and temples, a bridge, among others, belonging to different periods, are a testimony to the fact of how the city’s heritage evolved over the centuries. City rulers have given different monuments, before Ahmed Shah to modern period. It has architecture from the Sultanate, Mughal, Maratha, Dutch and British periods. After Independence, the city had roped in American and European architects for modern structures like IIM building, Town Hall, Tagore Hall and Sanskar museum. Sarkehj Roza, Sidi Saiyad ni Jali, Bhadra fort, Gaekwad’s Haweli, Dutch Tomb, Nagina Vadi depict the timeline of the city’s rulers.
The magnificence of Agra and Rajasthan’s architectural heritage is astounding and here you’ll find some of India’s best-known buildings. From temples and mosques to mansions and mausoleums, the region has it all. Most spectacular, however, are the fairy-tale forts and palaces built by Rajputs and Mughals, which still bear testimony to the celebrated history of North India.
When one thinks of Delhi, the instant architectural memory that surfaces one’s mind is one full of haphazard house types ranging from extremely wealthy bungalows of Lutyens’ Delhi to very indigenous bazaar-based complex settlements of East Delhi. One wonders what role does Architecture in Delhi have played or continue to assume in deciding the landscape of this ever changing city.
