Vastushastra (architecture)

Rājaveśma (राजवेश्म) refers to the “residential quarters of the kings” (and their kinsmen), according to the Samarāṅgaṇasūtradhāra verse 15.1-8.— The opening sentence of the fifteenth chapter—‘rājaniveśa’, says, “that the planning of the Rājaveśma was a component part of the planning of a town”. Any town plan in ancient or medieval India must bestow sufficient attention to the Rājaveśma—the residential quarters of the kings and their kinsmen together with all the establishments of a king those days. This is what the Samarāṅgaṇasūtradhāra says at the very outset (cf. 15.1-8).

Note: It may be noted that the Rājaveśma of the Samarāṅgaṇasūtradhāra unlike that of Mānasāra does not admit of any classification in kind but degree only. The standard of measurement varies with its three varieties of the superior, intermediate and inferior quality. The first one of the one hundred eight hastas, the second of ninety hastas and the inferior one of seventy hastas, are deemed as fit—a lower measurement than this is prohibited.
