If you're in the Delhi region (Gurgaon, specifically), one good place to start your architectural research is the AIIS Center for Art and Archaeology (CAA). But you needn't be in India to start this research — you can start at the Virtual Museum of Images and Sounds. This vibrant site is supported by the Ministry of Culture, Government of India, and provides access both to CAA resources and the Archives and Research Center for Ethnomusicology (ARCE). There are 1,000s of architectural drawings in the CAA archives. The photography collection is also extensive; some photos have been categorized by subject into Special Collections.
Take a look at the online Info Desk for advice on registering to use the collection, rights and permissions, and ordering images. To talk to CAA directly, see below.
