Modern Architecture

In the nineteenth century, Pucca (strong) houses, large in size with backed bricks, mortar, lime, molasses and timber began to be constructed. The poorer section of the people used Gilaba rather than lime and mortar and country tiles for their roofs. From about the twentieth century, cement and sand began to be used in places of mortar and  lime. People began to project porticos and balconies unsupported by pillars. Construction of buildings even at marshy places became possible and gigantic structures with deep iron foundations have come up in Bihar.
