 Jaipur Heritage Walking Tours

 The earliest phase of architectural activity in Rajasthan was an offshoot of the extensive and virile movement initiated during the Gupta period ofIndian history (4th to 6th centuries) known as the Golden Age of Indian History. It gave Rajasthan many great temples between the 8th and 11th centuries. Most of these monuments suffered destruction during the early Muslim invasions. However, the beauty of their workmanship can well be imagined from the carved pillars of Hindu temples used by Muslim builders in Adhai-din-ka-Jhonpra at Ajmer.

Fortunately, a few of the old temples have survived the ravages of man and time. In the village of Osia in Rajasthan are some sixteen ruined Brahminical and Jain temples. The earlier of these, belonging to the 8th and 9th centuries, from a group in which no two temples are alike. Representing the post-Gupta style in Rajasthan is the rock-cut temple at Damnar, about 80 km. (50 miles) from Jhalra Patan. The temple of Kalika Mata in Chittor and the Siva temple at Bundi are notable examples of the 10th-century architecture. The temple of Eklingji Mahadeva, 19 km. (12 miles) from Udaipur, built in the 8th century by Bapa Rawal, is a structure of unusual design. The neighbouring village of Nagda, an ancient site, has many beautifully sculptured temples. Rana Kumbha of Mewar built many temples at Chittor in the 15th century. Of these, a Siva temple and two temples dedicated to Lord Krishna are worthy of note. Of the Jain shrines in Rajasthan, the Dilwara temples in Mount Abu are famous for the richness of their carvings in marble. Among the Muslim monuments, the shrine of Khwaja Muin-ud-Din Chishti at Ajmer is worthy of note.

With the advent of Muslim power in India, Rajasthan’s architecture became secular in character, finding expression in palaces, forts and citadels. Their builders, mostly Hindu princes, borrowed structural features from Muslim buildings. As a rule, the forts and citadels are situated either on rocky eminences or by the side of lakes which afforded protection against enemy attacks. Generally, their basements are fortified with round towers and bastion or are built solid up to a considerable height. This gives a pleasing effect of solidity to the whole, however light the superstructure may be. The forts of Chittor, Kumbhalgarh, Ranthambhor, Jalor, Jodhpur, Vijay garh and Basantgarh are some of the examples of military architecture in Rajasthan. The richly-carved Victory Tower built by Rana Kumbha in 1468 is a monument to the Rajputs’ architectural greatness.

Of the princely mansion and palaces in Rajasthan, built mainly during the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries, the main examples are those at Udaipur, Amber, Bikaner, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer and at Bundi.

Unlike the temples, these buildings do not conform to any rigid pattern. Instead, they show evidence of individual taste and liking. Most of these palaces are large and irregular buildings, often enlarged and altered from time to time. Their interior consists of a large durbar hall and a court of assembly, the remaining space being occupied by apartments with inter-connecting passages. They have about them an atmosphere of seclusion and mystery.
Among these structures, the magnificent palace of Amber has pride of place. Described as ‘the sleeping beauty of Rajasthan’, it is perched on a rose coloured ring of granite hills in idyllic surroundings. In this palace may be seen marble tracery, halls of mirrors and excellent frescoes. The castellated palace of Bundi and the Maharana’s palace on Lake Pichola at Udaipur have a rare magnificence. Then there is the fanciful architecture of the Hawa Mahal or the Palace of Winds at Jaipur and of the palace at Deeg in Bharatpur.
There is ample evidence of the influence of Rajput art and architecture in the Muslim buildings at Agra, Fatehpur Sikri and Ajmer.
