Mehrauli: A View from the Qutb with photographs and text by Karoki and Charles Lewis brings into focus Mehrauli?s history and legendary past ? the numerous medieval-period baolis, garden tombs, shrines and mosques scattered about Mehrauli?s environs, its rich cultural and religious traditions, and life today in the crowded markets, old havelis, narrow lanes and migrant labour colonies. With over 135 full-colour photographs and other illustrations, and text using original source material, interviews with residents, archival records etc., the book captures something of the flavour of Mehrauli?s rich heritage and special character today.
