The architecture of Hindu temples evolved over a period of more than 2,000 years and show a great variety. Hindu temples are of different shapes and sizes rectangular, octagonal, semicircular with different types of domes and gates. Temples in southern India have a different style than those in northern India. Although the architecture of Hindu temples is varied, they have many things in common, especially these six parts: The dome and steeple, the inner chamber, the temple hall, the front porch, the reservoir, and the walkway.
