The interiors in India are as exotic and fascinaton as the land itself. Their historical evicence starts within the narratives of the Hindu epics. In physical form, cave dwellings are the earliest example, but the interior space that one can relate to start appearing from 2nd century B.C in the form of rock cut cave temples. Later, the numerous dynasties that ruuled India, left their enduring mark by constructing forts for defense and palaces for luxurious living. Towards the end of the colonicl rule, a number of ostentatious palaces were added to the Indian landscape, many of them were inspired ny European palaces. Today, a number of these places have been converted into magnificent hotels.
