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.

I just got the package delivered. The books look in good condition from outside. Thanks again. It is always a pleasure doing business with you.
Shambhu, Brooklyn
I wanted to let you know that the books arrived yesterday in excellent condition. Many, many thanks for the very rapid response. My husband had purchased many years ago a Kâshî Sanskrit Series edition of Nâgesha’s work that lacked the second volume. Delighted to have found the entire work — and in the original edition.
Cheryl, Portland.
I received a sterling silver cuff and ring. Both are more beautiful than I imagined. They came in a beautiful box; I will treasure them. The items here are made by artists.. and the shipping was faster than I expected.
