Over this period of 400 years, we see the downfall of a major empire by an onslaught of invasions, the inception of regional powers that saw the re-emergence of a structure that was a physical manifestation of ownership in the form of a monolith or an inscription. The presence of these new regional powers led to the growth of a new religion and its need for a new place of worship i.e. the Hindu Temple that was influenced by the styles of the structures that preceded it and its evolution with time in different regions. Architecture as a tool to declare and pronounce absolute authority and dominance in the administration and rule of the empire is seen in the establishment of fortified and well-planned capitals to ensure the growth and safety of these regional powers. The structures following the establishment of capital show the further development that took place in the region. This development of the capital took place in the multiple Kingdoms that were neighboring one another during this era to attain some sort of security in politically unstable southern India. The era is highlighted by a diverse spectrum of materials, form, scale, and style elements that eventually mold and fuse into a distinctive style of temple architecture. The architecture of a particular era depicts its political scenario through various parameters like the typology of structures that range from a township to religious structures like the temples that stood tall through these various shifts of power and became an icon for the region as well as the ruler.
