Architectural Drawings

The Center for Art & Archaeology has a large repertoire of manually made measured architectural drawings, created through several documentation programs of the Center. Some of the earliest drawings were made in 1966 when the Center started its first project of surveying and documenting the historical buildings, particularly temple architecture of India. The types of architectural drawings housed in the archives of the CA & A include maps, site plans, floor plans, elevations, sections, mouldings and individual drawings of specific architectural components. The maps depict political regions of various dynasties of the subcontinent. All the drawings that are part of the above collection are made by the Center’s draftsmen who visited each of these sites and buildings, measured and created about 10,000 drawing including 6000 hand-drawn measured sketches.
