About The Series

 

India is a land of great diversities in terms of religion and language. It houses in its bosom people following widely varying customs, and traditions and having diverse cultural and linguistic affiliations.

 

Perhaps this is what makes India an exotic land full of surprises. India's great monuments, impregnable Forts, exquisitely built temples, elaborate museums and its busy bazaars bear ample testimony to its glorious past. Every Indian city has a rich cultural heritage of its own. Unfortunately the modernisation process has reduced them to commercial centres, thus shifting attention from their rich historical treasures. It is in this context that there is an urgent need to remind Indians of all ages of their precious heritage and rich culture and to reemphasize their relevance.

 

This series is a humble attempt in that direction. Its objective is to acquaint its reader with India's glorious achievements in the past in the fields of art, architecture, education, science and other areas, all of which have imparted to it a unique identity in the world.

 

Each of these Books contains a vivid description of India's different cities, its myths and legends, its monuments and historical sites. The Books are richly illustrated with multicoloured pictures and contain a Guide map of the concerned city.

 

The Books are written in a simple language and follow a narrative style which aids understanding and makes the reading of these Books a pleasurable experience. Lastly, we hope this series will help readers rediscover India and appreciate the greatness of its rich and diverse culture. Further, each book also provides a brief account of the spots worth seeing around the city described.
