Architectural Wonders of India Posted by on Jan 12, 2010 in Hindi Language

India is a land filled with many beautiful and interesting man-made structures of architecture. Let’s take a look at some of these constructions.

The statue of Gomateshwara is a grand monument. It is 17 meters high (55 ft). The statue is of Gomateshwara (also known as Bahubali) who was a Jain prophet. The statue is presented nude, and is made of granite. The statue stands on top of a hill located in Karnataka State. Every twelve years devotees gather around the statue and present gold coins, butter, milk, yogurt and saffron as an offering.

The Golden Temple (Harmandir Sahib) is one of the most holiest Sikh shrines. The temple is located in the city of Amritsar in Punjab. The temple is surrounded by a large lake. It can be entered by four different sides, which is symbolic of the openess and inclusiveness of the temple. People of all relgions and gender may enter, the only prohibition being that you don’t bring any alcohol, cigarettes, and meat to the temple.

The Lotus Temple is located in Delhi, India and is the Bahá’í House of Worship. People of all religions may enter, but they cannot deliver sermons or peform any ritual ceremonies inside the temple. Also, chanting of prayers and singing is allowed, but no musical instruments can be played. The Lotus Temple was intended to be a universal place of worship. Therefore any prohibitions were designed to prevent any one religion from dominating the temple.

The Qutab Minar is a tower in Delhi containing the world’s tallest minaret. The tower is made of brick, sandstone and marble. It is 72.5 meters tall (234 feet). There is a slight tilting of the tower, but that’s to be expected, since it’s a freestanding structure. According to tradition, anyone who can circle the entire diameter of the tower with their back leaning against the pillar will have their wish granted!
