About The Book

Indore, the largest city of Madhya Pradesh, is one of India's fastest growing commercial centres. Its royal legacy and cultural traditions go hand-in-hand with its buzzing commerce and upbeat pace of life.

This book explores both sides of Indore — the old and the new, taking the reader on a journey through its history, grand monuments, vibrant arts and crafts, and cosmopolitan culture.

It also includes an exhaustive section on the many tourist destinations to which the city is a gateway, namely, the architecturally resplendent Mandu; Ujjain, seeped in history and legend; and the popular pilgrimage sites of Maheshwar and Omkareshwar.

This highly visual guidebook, with over a hundred stunning photographs, illustrations and maps, and a detailed and up-to-date Practical Information section, is a perfect companion for not just the intrepid tourist but also the armchair traveller.
