One of the glorious aspects of the Ancient Indian art and Architecture had been the creation of Monoliths which were hewn out of solid rocks. Though the presence of these monoliths could be traced in the Vedic and later Vedic texts, but no specimens beyond the Mauryan period could be traced. The Indra Sabha of Chandragupta Maurya at Kumrahar near Patna was credited with having eighty-two monolithic pillars with the glazed polish. However, with Asoka's ascending to the throne of Magadha, the art of chiselling in India received a great boost. During his times a number of monolithic pillars with capitals including those at Sanchi and Sarnath were created. The pillars of the Mauryan period were circular in their design but during the subsequent period the stress on circular monoliths was almost abandoned. In their place, the square, hexagonal, or octagonal monolithic pillars were patronised. In centuries that followed the artist besides continuing the activity of monolithic pillars, also started the chiselling of the monolithic cave stupas, which served the cause of Buddhism, followed by the creation of monolithic temples, like those at Ellora, Mahabalipuram and Masrur (Kangra). These Monoliths have their own importance in the Indian Art and Architecture. The present work deals with the subject in detail, highlighting the salient features of the Indian monoliths.Printed Pages: 204.
