9780714829623: The History of Architecture in India: From the Dawn of Civilization to the End of the Raj

This is the first ever modern monograph to draw together all the strands of India's architectural history - from the Vedic and native traditions of early India, through Hindu, Buddhist, Islamic and secular architecture, to the eclecticism of the British Raj. The History of Architecture in India provides the essential background information on invasions and migrations, dynasties, religion, symbolism and myth in the development of characteristic forms. Hundreds of photographs, engravings, maps, plans and elevations are closely integrated with rigorous but accessible text, resulting in a tome essential for scholars and anyone interested in one of the world's richest architectural traditions.
