These are new buildings pretending to be old, right? I understand some people like that, but are there any examples of more modern architecture among Indian temples? You know, without historical reference? Something simple, modern etc...?

They are not pretending to be old. Its just traditional architecture. There's plenty of concrete stuff being built, but I'm not interested in covering it.

The way I see it, the incredible amount of hard work that takes to create these masterpieces is the Indian way to express their commitment to God or the path they choose.
