Qutb Minar and its Monuments
Qutb Minar and its Monuments
Description
From the Jacket:

Located a few kilometers to the south of central Delhi, is the sprawling complex housing one of the capital's best-known landmarks - the Quub Minar. Impressively ornate and beautifully calligraphed, this soaring tower of medieval vintage attracts many visitors from all across the globe. Though known primarily for the tower, the complex contains several other monuments like the Alai Darwaza, Alai Minar, Ittutminish's tomb, Alauddin Khalji's tomb and madrasa, and the iron Pillar.

This illuminating book outlines the Qutb's archeological and historical background highlighting the architectural and cultural contours of the monuments inside the complex. The author takes reader on a wondrous journey through temples, tombs, dargahs, step-wells and tanks, gateways, madrasas, sarais, palaces, gardens, and mosques representing different historical periods.

The monuments surrounding the Qutb Complex - Jamali Kamali mosque, Balban's tomb, Rajon ki Bain, Muhammad Quli Khan's tomb, and those in Mahrauli - are also described. The illustrations, layout plans, maps, and photograph provide an important visual presentation of the monument for visitors who will also find the glossary and practical tips very useful.

Lucidly written by an expert on the subject, this book will be indispensable for general readers and informed tourists visiting the site.

Students and scholars of history, cultural studies, and arts and architecture will also find the work interesting.

I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist. Namaste, Namaskara.
