City Palace of Udaipur: Historical View and a Guide
City Palace of Udaipur: Historical View and a Guide
Description
About the Book:

A city named after its founder. Maharana Udai Singh II, Udaipur has, ever since its first appearance on Rajasthan's map in 1569, substituted Chittorgarh as the capital of Mewar State. And all along its history, this "City of Sunrise" has not only kept alive the spirit of Rajput chivalry, hospitality and legendary romance, but also exemplified the best in Rajput art, architecture and cultural traditions.

Irmgard Meininger here gives you fascinating glimpses of Udaipur's City Palace, known widely for its gorgeous royal apartments, its lavish use of white marble and equally lavish carvings, its beautiful gardens and fountains - to finally take you to its other side: the dominating "white mass of the palace" which, of late, has been set up as a museum. The author tries to describe not only the museum exhibits, but also the whole mix of arches, vaults, turrets and battlements that characterise the very palatial structure housing the museum.

Including a historical overview of Udaipur and its over 1400-year-old royal family, the Guide is enriched with exquisite visual material illustrating much of which you would want to know and see for yourself in the City Palace Museum.

About the Author:

Ms. Meininger, a German Judge for Criminal Law in profession, is a genuine connoisseur of arts, especially Indian arts and history that first drew her to India as far back as 1973. Her acquaintance ever since, with Maharaj Kumar Arvind Singh of Mewar and his family, coupled with four years of her intensive research and study combined with the input by Mohan Singh Kothari, a noble of Mewar has gone into the shaping of her this guide and the exquisite photographic reproductions it embodies. She has also published a more detailed and illustrative book on The Kingdom of Mewar.

Testimonials
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
