Brick Temple, Bhitragaon The Gupta kings were fond of art. The art of this period is of a very high standard from the point of view of beauty, ideas and representation. During this period, art, architecture, sculpture and painting reached a remarkable level of excellence.

Very few of the Gupta buildings have survived as most of them had been destroyed by Muslim invaders. Yet the few specimens of Gupta monuments surviving till today ,speak very highly of the Gupta architecture. The Vishnu temple at Deogarh in Jhansi district, a small temple near Sanchi and a brick temple at Bhitragaon, near Kanpur, are good examples of Gupta architecture.
