About this Item

Contents Foreword. Acknowledgement. 1. Early history of Amber. 2. The town of Amber. 3. Jaigarh Fort. The present volume is from the pen of Late Shri Gopal Narain Bahura who had an intimate knowledge of the history of the Kachhwaha ruling family of Amber Jaipur. The Kachhawahs established their power in Amber in the eleventh century and since then they continued to rule in Amber Jaipur down to our own times with great distinction. The names of Raja Man Singh Mirza Raja Jai Singh and Sawai Jai Singh were known throughout India from Afghanistan to Bengal and from Kashmir to the down south. The Kachhwaha rulers were as much known for their qualities as generals administrators and diplomats as for their devotion to their religion and patronage to Sanskrit learning and literature sciences and fine arts. They played an important part in the preservation of Hindu Religion and culture and there is strong reason to believe that they greatly influenced Akbar's liberal policies and outlook. The volume has rare photographs of temples palaces and other buildings built by the Kachhwaha rulers at Amber their capital for about seven hundred years. The account and the inside stories related to there superb structures are little known and coming as do from the pen of one of the great scholars should prove very illuminative and informative for the scholars tourists and laymen making it one of the most authentic accounts of Amber from historical and cultural points of view. 96 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 73368
