Architecture Lime and Sand Stone Carving of Saurashtra, Gujarat

IMAGE GALLERY KEYWORDS YOUR VIEWS

Saurashtra was one of the first places in Gujarat, where temple building and stone architecture started. Temples, house ceilings, hangings from the wall, etc. all elements were once made only with stone. One of these structures is a stepwell, which was traditionally made by masons. Stepwells are designed to offer more than water. While the tiered structure provides shelter from the hot and dry weather, the structure, usually made of brick and sandstone and lime mortar, keep the surroundings cool.
