Indian art may, in a general way, be described as theological, hieratic, or, perhaps best of all as traditional. The purpose of Indian art, like all traditional art, is primarily to instruct men in the great first causes, which according to the seers, govern the material, spiritual and celestial worlds. Art is dedicated to communicating these great truths to mankind and, by the architectural, sculptural and pictorial reconstruction of the powers that maintain the stars in their courses.
Indian art and architecture can form the theme of some inspiring trips. Visit the temples of Tamil Nadu, enjoy the British influence in Shimla or visit the painted havelis in the Mandawa region, commonly referred to an open-air art gallery!
