Innumerable saints and seers, in their quest for knowledge, have contributed mainly to the growth of various religious monuments viz. Temples, Mosques, Monasteries etc. built generously across the length and breadth of the country. For this very reason, India is also known as the temple of country. The architectural enthusiasm is expressed in its places of worship, which form an essential part of its cultural diversity.
