Paṭamaṇḍapa (पटमण्डप) refers to a “shamiana” (large tent) that were commonly build during the reign of the Vākāṭakas (mid-3rd century CE).—Ajaṇṭā paintings show that the palaces and mansions of rich persons were constructed on wooden pillars which were decorated with carvings or paintings in three places, at the bottom, in the middle and at the top. [...] When necessary, shamianas (paṭamaṇḍapas) and tents (upakāryās) were erected. They are mentioned by Kālidāsa in the description of the grand reception of prince Aja in Kuṇḍinapura, the capital of Vidarbha.

context information

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
