The Department of Architecture at Vishwakarma University conducted a settlement study in RANJE village, near Pune, by its first-year students. Immersed in the village's traditional fabric, they explored its cultural essence, interacting closely with locals to grasp their daily lives and values. Documenting timber construction houses and delving into the history and significance of the famed Ranjeshwar Shiva Temple, students gained invaluable insights into traditional architecture's evolution and significance. This study serves as a vital educational tool, equipping budding architects with a profound understanding of traditional architectural principles and the cultural contexts that shape them, fostering appreciation and preservation of architectural heritage.
