With its magnificent monuments, medieval domes, forlorn ruins, grand havelis, quaint bazaars, royal mausoleums, wayside sarais and connecting bridges - history lives in Delhi's heart and soul. This collector's item carries an interesting short text on Delhi with 24 color plates.
Situated on a rich alluvial plain with a naturally protected setting, Delhi has been the capital of the heroes of the Mahabharata, and the invading hordes of the Mongols, Turks, Persians, Afghans and Mughals. It has witnessed the rule of the spirited Tomar Rajputs and the indomitable Chauhans who established Delhi's first city, Lal Kot and Qila Rai Pithora, in response to the attacks from the north-west by the Turkish warlord, Muhammad Ghori.
‘Delhi, a city so ethereal and seductive that when it is savored, one may easily forget that it is savored, one may easily forget that it is a work of human labor.
. . .Delhi – the City Select – Unparalleled, Unequalled, Distinctive – the only one of its kind in the world!’
