Water Management Model in Historical Maharashtra.
Water Management Model in Historical India.
The history of india is incomplete without architecture. The massive construction made by various kings to serve his kingdom or to prove his presence and power are today models for modern architecture. Mostly what tourist see is popular sites visited by every one but few monuments or places have special connection with tourists with special interest over and above the tourism.
Water management models in historical India are very few. The region of Ajanata and ellora are falls into average rainfall region and hence the need for water management emerged. Few of them can be seen in your trip to Aurangabad.
