- Mauryan Empire: Art and Architecture
The architectural remains have been found between the period of the Harappans and the Mauryas because in this period buildings are not made up of stone. After the decline of Harappan civilization, long gap was generated and in the Mauryan period only monumental stone sculpture, production of masterpieces and architecture appeared. Therefore, Mauryan rule marks an important phase in our cultural history.
The oldest art and architecture forms available today are from the period of the Mauryan empire. Mauryan Empire was a period of stability and hence encouraged art forms. The Mauryans produced architecture for various purposes. The period was marked by the mature use of stone and the production of masterpieces. The Mauryan period art and architecture, except that of the relics of the palace of Chandragupta Maurya at Pataliputra, is mainly Asokan.

Mauryan Empire: Art and Architecture
The establishment of the Mauryan empire in contrast to the earlier smaller kingdoms ushered in a new form of government, that of a centralized empire. The Mauryan Empire indicates the triumph of monarchy as a political system over tribal republics. A study of the Arthasastra in conjunction with the edicts provides information regarding the administrative structure.
Introduction: In India the establishment of a vigorous dynasty ruling over wide dominions has invariably resulted in the application of a strong stimulus to the development of mans intellectual and artistic powers. Such a dynasty, exercising its administrative duties effectively, fostering commerce, maintaining active intercourse, commercial and diplomatic, with foreign states, and displaying the pomp of a magnificent court, both encourages the desire to do great things, and provides the material patronage without which authors and artists cannot live. Chandragupta Maurya established an empire in India in the 4th cent. For the first time, large portions of the subcontinent were unified politically. Chandraguptas grandson Ashoka was the most powerful and popular emperor of this dynasty.
Mauryan empire , in ancient India , a state centred at Pataliputra later Patna near the junction of the Son and Ganges Ganga rivers. It lasted from about to bce and was the first empire to encompass most of the Indian subcontinent. The Mauryan empire was an efficient and highly organized autocracy with a standing army and civil service. They were defeated and, after the conclusion of a treaty, the Seleucids and the Mauryans maintained friendly relations. Now enjoying peace along the western border, Chandragupta was free to focus his military exploits to the east and to the south.
