Take a journey through Indian architecture from the dawn of civilization to the present with this colorful, attractive survey. Styles examined here include Hindu, Jain, Mughal (Islamic) and colonial (British) architecture, culminating in landmarks still existent today. Themes such as water architecture and the architecture of science also figure prominently, giving many westerners their first glimpse of these styles. The informative text, complemented by 400 photographs, watercolors, maps and plans, provide compelling evidence of India's influence on building design throughout history.
