Thanks Marathaman, your efforts do not go unnoticed!

It appears to meet that India is one of the last places on the planet that still produces Architecture.

^Thanks. Not sure what you mean by that. Most countries do produce their own architecture.

Anyways...

Interesting pictures Marathaman. I've noticed that the temples generally tend to be left uncoloured. Is there any particular reason for this and is it the norm with Indian temples?

^Depends on the style. Many of the temples shown here are from a particular Gujarati/Rajasthani style that has become popular throughout North and Central India. Temples from the Maratha Confederacy period (17th-18th century) are often coloured/painted, and so are temples of the Madurai Nayak period in Tamil Nadu and other southern states.

Infact, a lot of temples today are built from concrete and painted like modern buildings, but those are very ordinary looking structures and don't have much architectural value.

There was a considerable gap in continuity during the Islamic period in some parts of the country, so a lot of temples that may have been painted earlier were not maintained/fallen to disrepair and the paint may have washed away. Later when the styles were revived in the modern period, the architects may have assumed that they were always unpainted.

So there is a lot of uncertainty and variation through the ages, but as of today, this white marble or sandstone unpainted type of construction is in vogue (except South India and Himalayan region)

Hey many of them I have seen it. I have seen Rajot's temple as well as Ahmedabad's Jain temple etc. I think Indian temple has its different attraction as well as they all are very eye snatching. They all are not only as a place of worship for the devout, but also as an architectural marvel for the curious tourist.

Not exactly a temple - a stone memorial is being built for some Maharishi (great saint) in Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh
