The Free Architecture Guide of India (PDF)

India is a surreally beautiful country, some of its monuments are among the most impressive you’ll ever dream of seeing. Every corner of India deserves a visit and that’s why this is a country map instead of a city map. Anything interesting in terms of architecture is here. If you find any mistakes, or have any suggestions please let me know. My intention is to keep it useful. Hope you enjoy!

  1. Hi Virginia. I live in India but I have to say, even I didn’t know as much. You’re doing a brilliant work here. And to make this guide, I can imagine how much you’d have to put in. Seriously, amazing job done. You’re my inspiration. Always.

    • Hi Colin, thanks for your kind words. I had a dilemma with this buildings because I read contradictory information from different sources. Are you sure it was designed by Le Corbusier?

      • Not by Corb but by Pierre Jeanneret. I think it’s conflicting because Corb oversaw the whole plan but Pierre was based there during the 50s and did work like this building. Hope that helps!

        • Ahhh, ok. Just changed the map to Pierre Jeanneret. I wasn’t quite sure about it so I am glad you pointed out to me. Plus you are an expert on Le Corbusier, so even more grateful 🙂

  2. Hi Virginia!
    Love your list!
    Although it is very exhaustive, I would love to suggest few more places of architectural importance in Mumbai, to add to your list.

    Art Deco precinct around the Oval Maidan (recently recogonised as UNESCO world heritage)
    Portuguese church
    National Gallery of Modern Art
    Khotachiwadi
    Eros Cinema
    Flora Fountain

    P.S. The following locations are wrongly marked
