Buddhist religious architecture developed in the Indian subcontinent. Three types of structures are associated with the religious architecture of early Buddhism : monasteries viharas , places to venerate relics stupas , and shrines or prayer halls chaityas , also called chaitya grihas , which later came to be called temples in some places.
