 Indiaclub.com Description

This fully revised edition includes brief details of all new discoveries in Delhi since 1964.. The most illuminating among these is the find of a rock-edict of Asoka. Less sensational, but no less elucidating for Delhi's past, are the results of the recent excavations at Purana-Qila.

Few Cities in India could claim the long continuity and status that Delhi has enjoyed. In the dim protohistoric past, at the site of the sixteenth century citadel Purana-Qila (Qal’a-I-Kuhna) lay perhaps Indraprastha, capital of the heroes of the epic ‘Mahabharata’. This settlement, known by different names at different times, has been recently excavated by the Archaeological Survey of India on a large scale revealing a continuous occupation from the Mauryan to Early Mughal period - from the third century BFC to the sixteenth century AD.

Since the appearance of the first edition of this book in 1964, new discoveries have been made in Delhi. The most illuminating among these is the find of a rock-edict of Asoka. Less sensational, but no less elucidating for Delhi’s past, are the results of the recent excavations at Purana-Qila. The present edition, which has been added in this edition.

A glorious chapter to Delhi’s history was added as recently as 1966 with the discovery of an inscription of the Maurya emperor Asoka (273-36 B.C.) engraved on a rugged rock of an outcrop of the Aravallis, near Srinivaspuri, west of Kalkaji temple (pp. 10, 105)
