The rich, complex and limitlessly fascinating culture of India, the product of waves of conquest and vast religious and philosophical movements, is reflected in its architectural monuments.  India’s many palaces, temples and churches reveal the country’s ability to accept and adapt to the changes that have swept over it through the centuries. In their presentation, two brilliant Indian-American architects –  Sanjay Kadu and Sajini Bandrinarayan – will give you a splendid introduction to the Indo-Saracenic Architecture style of the great Mysore Palace, Dravidian architecture in south India, and the Indo-Portuguese architecture with Mughal influence adorning Goa’s landscape. They will also provide insight into the principles that guided ancient temple designs and its influence on Indian Architecture, and a closer understanding of the architectural and structural marvel of the Kailasha Temple in Ellora.
