Question: why do these new Indian temples look like if they were build 200 years ago. In other words: why do these Indian religions don't experiment with modern architecture like other religions?

When I see those pictures it always reminds me of a neo-Gothic church build today: a bit kitsch.

Innovation and change probably isn't a hugely important value in their culture like it is in western culture?

Most new temples do look modern and use modern construction methods. I just post the traditional ones.

It's not a traditional structure. It's just faced with sandstone to mimic a traditional building.

I love the fact that they still build these temples in that old architectural style. That is, in my opinion, true architectural art. I wonder why the stylish old designs are not so popular nowadays, old architecture is a pleasure to sight.
