Baroque Architecture, India

The Indian Baroque architecture style emerged in wake of colonial presence in the subcontinent, due to interactions between Neo-Roman style European architecture and Indian styles. The study and documentation of Baroque Architecture of India was undertaken by Professor Jose Pereira during 1967-1969 for the American Academy of Benares, now the Center for Art and Archaeology of American Institute of Indian Studies. He visited areas in India where the Neo-Roman monuments are found accompanied by the Academy’s photographer Dharampal Nanda. The project covered Neo-Roman or Baroque Architecture of Goa, Daman, Diu, Kerala, Pondicherry and Tamil Nadu. The photographs are preserved in Photo-archives of the Center for Art and Archaeology, Gurgaon.
