From the book
All of the so-called cities of Delhi, including Indraprastha – a city said to have been built for the legendary Pandvas by the master craftsman Vishwakarma – perished and yet Delhi survives. Remarkably, none of the cities of Delhi was called Delhi. It was only after their decline that they became a part of Delhi. It is a paradox that those that perished were all walled cities and the one that survives has no fortification. Nevertheless, Delhi is amongst the richest cities of the world in terms of monuments. These monuments constitute an inspiring saga of our past; where history speaks through battered bricks and tattered stones.
About the book
The book presents a comprehensive history of Medieval Delhi and its archaeology. It introduces 84 monuments of Delhi from the Muslim era along with 133 photographs.
Such a historically important display of research of the soul of Delhi. Thanks Ranjanji – Sheila Dixit, Chief Minister, Delhi. A very interesting, beautiful and well documented showcase of Delhi's archaeological treasures – Antonio Armelini, Italian Diplomat.
