Course Introduction: The glorious tradition of architecture, sculpture and temple building flows from ancient India. The unique invention of Indian psyche's superlative imagination and aesthetics is visible in the architecture. From the Vedic period to the Indus-Saraswati civilization, the Maurya Empire, the Gupta Empire, there has been a continuous development of architecture and craftsmanship. There is an Upveda available by the name of Sthapatyaveda. In the name of Ashtanga architecture, the idea of ​​building architecture through different dimensions has been considered. Along with the concepts of direction, planets, constellations, VastuPurush, Vastu Shastra, the selection of stones, their transportation and the method of direct construction were studied deeply. It has been discussed in many such texts like Samarangan Sutradhar, Agnipuran, Maymatam, Manasar, Yukti Kalpataru, etc. The symbol of creation, which is called Shri Yantra or Mount Meru, we see the manifestation of that concept in the construction of temples. Indian architectural thought tries to balance the relation of Vastu to the earth and the universe. Despite the brutal invasion of Muslims and other invaders and the destruction of millions of temples and architecture, the number of architectural works available now is also very amazing. This creation and construction is so amazing that the secret of its creation, mechanism is not known. It is very important for every Indian to be familiar with ancient architecture.
