The architectural principles of Hindu temples in India are described in Shilpa Shastras and Vastu Sastras. The Stone architecture is a sculptor's dream come alive in stone. We can create original quality Traditional Sculpture, Relief Sculptures, Architectural Sculpture as per any given design.

A higher grade tile or natural stone will yield a more durable finished piece. That is why we work only with the finest natural stones producing a vivid level of detail and range of colour that is absolutely incomparable. With all different shapes, sizes and shades, these dense mineral deposits are perfectly imperfect, showcasing nature's true beauty.

Every region and period has produced its own distinct style of images with its regional variations in iconography. A temple should be designed to the minutest detail possible For example the placement of an image in a temple should be very carefully planned, for instance, river goddesses are usually found at the entrance of a garbhagriha in a Nagara temple, dvarapalas are usually found on the gateways or gopurams of Dravida temples, similarly, mithunas, navagrahas and yakshas are also placed at entrances to guard them.

Our team of master sculptors has acquired their unique knowledge from their forefathers and they are proficient in what they do. We can do everything from architectural drawing, design, the floor plan, Elevation, cost estimation, planning, carving and assembly of stone temples as per traditional norms. Rough natural stone/rock are shaped to an interesting object by careful removal of stone pieces.
