Upakāryā (उपकार्या) refers to “tents” 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.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
