History of Gothic Art
Brajugar who earlier used to rule northeastern part of Rajasthan moved further more eastward towards central India. Earlier region which was ruled by them was known as Dhundhel or Dhundela. After moving in central part of country they started calling themselves Chandela specifically for those who have the gotra of Kashyap and belongs to ruling clan. These Barjugars served as servants to Gurjara and Pratihara Empire in north part and they remained till 500 CE to 1300 CE. Ruling dynasty of Gurjars and Pratiharas also constructed several magnificent monuments during their own era.
From 10th to 12th century Chandela made their capital city in Madhya Pradesh Khajuraho. Hindu dynasty was ruling the nation and Kaljingar was their political capital. This mesmeric group of structures was built 200 years ago from 950 to 1150. One cannot see any fort because Chandelas never stayed in their cultural capital.
