In a documentary about Empires of India there was very interesting part about the temples of one of the princely states, existed here from 1501. India was devided in many little states in that period and had to stand the occupation of the mongols.

Our imagination that the raja were very rich and had very nice life comes from that times too.

The pantheon involved great number of gods in India, and it was the only thing common for all the states. That is the reason probably of so many temples, entire towns of temples.
What is interesting, the most muslim mongols were very tollerant in confront to the religions of the population. Many famous buildings like Taj Mahal are examples of this mix of the cultures.

While in Orchha you can see a temple of Indian architecture. The Lakshmi Temple(Wikipedia).
