Description

This book comprehensively studies defence architecture, from 200 A.D. to 1800 A.D. in Karnataka. The salient facts of the development of forts in relation to their planning, in the face of strong nature and stormy enemies, and the ever-growing art of war and techniques of weapons, are herein discussed threadbare based on ancient Shilpa texts and the hundreds of forts seen on the soil of ancient Karnataka. The whole book is a panorama of illustrations and drawn figures.
