About this Item

Contents: Preface. 1. Introduction : Akbar's personality and thought (1556-1605 A.D.). 2. Fatehpur Sikri : town-planning, drainage and water-supply. 3. Buildings of the `mosque complex of Fatehpur Sikri. 4. Rang-Mahal and the royal complex of Fatehpur Sikri. 5. Buildings of the public complex of Fatehpur Sikri. 6. Miscellaneous buildings of Fatehpur Sikri. 7. Retrospect : Assessment of the architectural style of Fatehpur Sikri. From the preface: "Entitled as it is, this work ventures to study, historically and stylistically, the monuments of Fatehpur Sikri (e.g. mosques, tombs, residential palaces, administrative mansions and offices, gateways, minar, garden, bazar, dam, baolis and hammams which except for a few, commissioned by Babur between 1527 and 1529 A.D., were built during the reign of Akbar, the Great, who ruled from 1556 to 1605. He was a rare genius, the like of whom appear only once in a millennium. Without disturbing the capital status of Agra, he shifted his residence and court to Fatehpur Sikri, situated some 40 kms west of Agra, just on the outskirts of Rajasthan, and resided there for nearly 13 years from 1572 to 1585. This was the most important phase of his life. Bookseller Inventory # 2165
