Maharajas: Resonance from the Past is the story of the Maharajas, Nizams, Nawabs, Maharawals, Jams, Rajas and Raos - rulers of the 565 Princely States of India. It tells of their origins from Vedic times, their rise to power, the proud defense of their clans, royal tastes which found expression in the magnificent architecture of their palaces and forts, mind-boggling collections of jewelry and arms and armor, lavish performance of rites and ceremonies. It tells of the romance of desert kingdoms, the crushing blow of the Mughals and the British Raj; the phoenix-like rise of new States and their eventual decline. Illustrated with almost 200 photographs from museums and previously unseen images from the personal collections of Royal descendants, this is a fascinating celebration of the splendour of Princely India.
