Description
About The Book

Burhanpur Travel Guide takes the reader into the marvelous, half-hidden world of a small town on the southern border of Madya Pradesh, once a major outpost of the great Mughals and now a repository of exquisite medieval architecture and forgotten histories.

This is where Shah Jahan lost his beloved queen, Mumtaz Mahal, a tragedy that made the emperor immortalize his love in the marble edifice of the Taj Mahal.

Burhanpur and its outskirts have masterpieces of architecture that include the magnificent fort of Asirgarh, that was once known as ‘Dakkhan ka Darwaza’ or Gateway to the Decan, the splendid Badshahi Qila on the banks of the Tapti and the Mahal Gulara.

From the many mosques where the faithful have gathered over the centuries, to the Dargah-e-Hakimi, foremost pilgrimage for Bohra Muslims, the hallowed temple of Ichhadevi and the Rajghat Gurudwara and Gurudwara Bari Sangat, where the first and last Sikh Gurus meditated – Burhanpur has emblems of almost every facet of medieval Indian history, and will make a rewarding journey for the curious traveller and the history buff alike.

With over 125 stunning photographs and an up-to-date Practical Information section, this guidebook is a perfect companion for not just the intrepid tourist but also the armchair traveller.

Testimonials

I love your site and although today is my first order, I have been seeing your site for the past several years. Thank you for providing such great art and books to people around the World who can't make it to India as often as we would like.
Rupesh
Heramba Ganapati arrived safely today and was shipped promptly. Another fantastic find from Exotic India with perfect customer service. Thank you. Jai Ganesha Deva
Marc, UK
I ordered Padmapani Statue. I have received my statue. The delivering process was very fast and the statue looks so beautiful. Thank you exoticindia, Mr. Vipin (customer care). I am very satisfied.
Hartono, Indonesia
Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.

Another three books arrived during the last weeks, all of them diligently packed. Excellent reading for the the quieter days at the end of the year. Greetings to Vipin K. and his team.
