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.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
