Mayan was aware of the dynamics of the Space and was able to apply the space-mechanism in his own creations and transform them to little universes on earth. Whatever be the creation, a building, a sculpture, a town or a city, they behaved like living organisms pulsating with life. Hence he was rightly called Viswakarma of the material world or sometimes as the Viswakarma of the celestial world. No scientist of his caliber or status is found to have emerged in the soil of Bharat to date.
