Geometry for Gods
Abstract: Mathematics and Astronomy was the most prominent aspects of Science in Ancient India. Indians developed mathematics in early period chiefly through life living process like Egyptians. They recorded their findings which are now called as Sulva Sutras. In this paper, I provide an elaborate introduction about Sulva Sutras and the effect it had in life. It is observed that Ancient Mathematicians developed Sulva Sutras through various Geometric forms which in turn were used to construct different altars which formed the way of living in early India. This paper considers some of the Geometries used by Ancient Indians and people who constructed them with an application of this process.
