well........i never intended to prove myself over anything....
rather i just continued the discussion coz i thought i need to talk a bit more........

isn't it still more ironic that some of the best structures....that we had in Islamic architecture, are monuments....related to death.....
pyramids/other mousoleums.....
they celebrated the glories of life after death.

while in Hindus......
we have more of temple architecture.....

(plz. am not fundamentalist.....and i don't intend to compare two religions....but just their architectures....)
i know a bit as i had done a study, comparing Indian and Indo-Islamic architecture a part of my curriculum.
