There are surely striking similarities, kind of a common theme amongst 'ancient structures'... it kinda makes me wonder sometimes how this could be.
In my opinion, it looks as if these two had their own similar paths of development, but none the less are complete individuals themselves.
This very type of 'evolution' being possible, the mimic'ing and such of patterns used for communication manifests some real interesting questions as to how 'everything works'. I'd even go as far to say that this 'Golden Age' or whatever it's called, in this proposed theory is certainly plausible. I've actually suggested this myself many times. I wouldn't go as far to claim that they were more spiritual, rather... they had a totally different comprehension of what we call 'reality'. I suggest checking out Bicameralism (psychology). The evolution of consciousness, communication and/or cognition is some interesting story that I've been researching for a while now.
Bicameralism (the philosophy of "two-chamberedness") is a hypothesis in psychology that argues that the human brain once assumed a state in which cognitive functions were divided between one part of the brain which appears to be "speaking", and a second part which listens and obeys—a bicameral mind. The term was coined by psychologist Julian Jaynes, who presented the idea in his 1976 book The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind, wherein he made the case that a bicameral mentality was the normal and ubiquitous state of the human mind as recently as 3000 years ago.

No one denies they look similar. But that doesn't mean they were "working off the same blueprints".
If they both had the same set of numbers inscribed on their tombs, then I would say, ya theres probably something going on here.
However, admiring or respecting elephants and snakes in not incredibly unique, special, or creative. A lot of these can be explained as simple coincidence.
For example, the arched doorway. wiki Very common. Theres a few ways to make stable doorways in architecture, especially when building with stone. Why wouldnt two cultures be able to come up with this? Its not an incredibly complex design. IF i had to learn how to build a doorway, why wouldnt you eventually try this method?
The general idea is that somehow, though unknown how, there existed contact between the peoples of India and the Americas a few thousand years ago.
