Amarashilpi Jakanachari’s Hoysala architecture now at Statue of Equality
Each of these centres will be encircled by beautifully carved pillars by 464 pillars. Hoysala style architecture will be seen in these pillars. This architecture took birth around 11th century in Karnataka under Hoysala Empire. A prolific architect, Sri Jakanachari architected several temples in south India in this ancient beautiful style.
Baselana black marble will be used for these pillars. Out of the 464 planned pillars, 120 of them have reached the site at JIVA. Last week, 2 pillars are positioned and tested. 6 craftsmen worked on fixing the pillars and around 25 more artisans will join them in positioning the remaining pillars. 160 artisans are working on these pillars at Jaipur and Bandra, Rajasthan.
