Jaisalmer Art, Architecture and Tourism
Jaisalmer Art, Architecture and Tourism
Description
From the Jacket

The cultural life of the people of Jaisalmer is fascinating. This book is based largely on the personal experiences, narratives of the local people gathered during several visits in addition to references drawn from historical records about Jaisalmer. I owe gratitude to Mr. Anupam Mishra of Gandhi Peace Foundation, New Delhi and Shri Bhagawan Das Maheshwari, the great old man of Jaisalmer who have been not only instrumental in attracting my attention to Jaisalmer but also helping me in gathering relevant information incorporated in this book. Attempt has been made to present vital aspects of the life of the people, the cultural ambience and the architectural beauty of Jaisalmer in a descriptive and lucid manner incorporating certain historical incidents and accounts that were of great significance in the shaping the character of Jaisalmer. In spite of the introduction of modern symbols of technology, Jaisalmer holds its traditional identity and great attraction among the Indian as well as foreign tourists and scholars even to this day as highlighted in various chapters. The architectural beauty and various elements that have gone into shaping the city of Jaisalmer have not yet been fully explored and have the potential to keep the visitors attracted for years to come. It is presumed that the readers will get ample information about the character of Jaisalmer through the pages of this book and attempt further exploration in their own individual way. As a unique milestone in the history of architecture the structures of Jaisalmer need great attention in regard to conservation as well as preservation.

Ranbir Singh is a person of diverse interests ranging from scholarly pursuits to photography. He is thoroughly acquainted with the life and culture of the people of Rajasthan, particularly the Shekhawati, Marwar and the Bhatti territory i.e. Jaisalmer. He has vividly documented and captured the images of the events and life of the people of northern India, particularly northwestern Rajasthan and Haryana, his home State. He has traveled widely throughout the length and breadth of the country and frequently goes on excursions in the Great Indian Desert and the Himalayas. He seems to have scientifically tempered the documentation about cultural heritage of the people of Rajasthan and Haryana.

Testimonials

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.
BWM, NZ

Love the website and the breadth of selection. Thanks for assembling such a great collection of art and sculpture.
Richard, USA
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.
Walter
Your products are uncommon yet have advanced my knowledge and devotion to Sanatana Dharma. Also, they are reasonably priced and ship quickly. Thank you for all you do.
Gregory, USA
Thank you kindly for the Cobra Ganesha from Mahabalipuram. The sculpture is exquisite quality and the service is excellent. I would not hesitate to order again or refer people to your business. Thanks again.
Shankar, UK
The variety, the quality and the very helpful price range of your huge stock means that every year I find a few new statues to add to our meditation room--and I always pick up a few new books and cds whenever I visit! keep up the good work!
