This post is in continuation of my previous one on Jagat Shiromani Temple. This is a picture of Jagat Shiromani Temple, Amer.
it is a beautiful amalgamation of the various architectural styles of its time. Clearly, the Rajput, Mughal, and south Indian styles are predominant here. Add to this, the exquisite blend of different stones – marble, sandstone, and black stone. The resultant architectural style is pretty unique. One can see various design elements, unique to each architectural style.
Since the rulers of Amer were Senapati or commander of the Mughal army, the Rajput kings of Amer had participated in many battles right from Kabul in the west to Bengal in the east. Some of the battles even took them towards the Deccan plateau. This would have possibly, inspired them to pick the best of each architectural style and create a unique style.
