Indus Civilisation and the Vedic Village

The earliest production in the Indus Valley Civilization was characterised by well planned cities and houses.

The presence of drainage systems and public baths showed advanced standards of hygiene and sanitation and ingenious planning.

The Vedic village had certain distinct characteristics that influenced subsequent architectural production. The Vedic grama could have a pur, or a fort – like structure within it. The Vedic hymns speak of “purs” made of stone and metal.

The Rig – Veda speaks once of a palace with 1000 doors, and twice of a palace with 1000 columns.
