Description

A fascinating account of the old capital, and an inspiring and passionate history of Kashmir and its people told by the 'last great imperial adventurer'.

Bernier, the first European to enter Kashmir, writing in 1665, said: in truth, the Kingdom surpasses in beauty all that my warmest imagination had anticipated '. This book is not about the entire Kashmir state, which includes many outlying provinces, but about Kashmir proper.

The paintings are a vivid impression of this beauteous state of lake gardens and snow-clad mountains. It is a fascinating account of the old capital, the Dal Lake, the 'meadow of flowers', the Residency Garden, and an inspiring and passionate history of Kashmir and its people.
