The Indian architecture is world famous for its decoration. The credit goes to Mughal to brought new geometrical architectural approach, techniques coupled with colours schemes. The geometrical pattern art flourished in India during Mughal period and is evident from their buildings which are influenced by local culture, climate, tradition, material and technology. Pattern decoration techniques and designs, originated during the Mughal period, and are now being practiced in contemporary building as part of the interior as well as exterior walls and floors. The geometrical, arabesques, floral, fruits and abstract forms used in contemporary buildings really connect us with Mughal period. This paper attempts to find rationale (i.e., aesthetic, cultural and other) for using technique and designs for wall and floor decoration in contemporary period and explores its impact on culture. The study infers that the pattern decoration in present time relate to the Mughal as well as to Hindu culture.
