Taj Mahal and Agra
Taj Mahal and Agra
Description
From the Jacket

Agra ensconced besides the Yamuna river and situated more than two hundred kilometers to the South of Delhi, shot into prominence when an Afghan ruler decided to make it his capital city. What followed was a glorious era of immense wealth, unparalleled enterprise and artistic talent in a period stretching over 100 years from the reign of Babur to that of Shah Jahan

Beginning from the prominent ones like Ram Bagh, Agra Fort, Sikandra, Itmad-ud-Daulah, Fatehpur Sikri and finally the incomparable Taj Mahal, the edifices which the Mughal monarchs left behind, comprise a rich tapestry of superb architectural forms.

The glorious days of Agra, which resembles any other long ago, but for every visitor and connoisseur of art, this historic city with a rich legacy of art, architecture and aesthetic shall always remain synonymous with magnificence and grandeur.

Rupinder Khullar's exquisite photographs and Reeta's informative text take you back in time to savour the splendours of Taj Mahal and Mughal Agra.

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.
