Interesting series on Indian architecture on Netflix

Post by Idéfix on Wed Jul 19, 2017 2:36 pm

I just watched this series on Indian architecture called Sanrachna: https://www.netflix.com/title/80102264

Each episode is less than about 20 minutes, and it covers two specific monuments from Indian history. Each episode deals with a different theme (e.g. acoustics, ventilation, etc.) I liked the choice of monuments overall, and they do a fairly decent job of describing the unique features of the monument and the construction techniques that were used.

The series is in Hindi, which I think limits the possibility of technical coverage. I am fairly conversant in literary and everyday Hindi, but find technical discussions in Hindi contrived (e.g. fusion of arcuate and trabeate construction techniques under the Mughals). My other complaint is that ten minutes is not enough for an in-depth coverage of some of the subject matter. But it is better than nothing. I think they can do at least a couple more seasons and still not run out of intriguing material.

Are there any other shows out there that feature ancient Indian monuments?

Remember watching one or two episodes on DD about Forts in India. There may be more such content in the Indian Channels, if any

Nice show. I have watched most of the episodes. I also liked "Raja, Rasoi aur anya Kahaniyaan".
