India has a very rich and diverse cultural heritage and when studying from one built form to another, it can be observed that each plan and architectural form has a very close association with the purpose it was built for. The use of daylight in these structures is very well documented and studied, the acoustics of the structure are hidden, especially for a place of worship and performance. It needs special attention and should be addressed subjectively. The effect of architectural form and elements on the acoustics of the structure needs to be documented and studied. It should be documented using acoustical instruments like omnidirectional sound source and handheld analysers and ODEON and EASE 4.3, a simulation of the space should be done to understand the original setting of that structure. Taramati Baradari in Hyderabad will be used as a case study.
