The Forts of Rajasthan

Rita Sharma (Author) Vijay Sharma (Author)

A rich collection of history, culture and lore of Rajasthan through its forts.  Rajasthan has the world’s richest lineage of forts. This book’s bracing narrative captures this heritage with ramparts and bastions resonating with the song and verse of Rajasthan across slope and sand, rock and river.  The easy-to-read book comes from home-schooling and history trails that took the authors to the forts, enabling a blend of pen and camera for a well-rounded portrayal. The book, second in the series after The Forts of Bundelkhand, flags the space for amateur history-enthusiasts to invigorate understanding of how the past influences the present.  The charisma of Rajasthan’s forts has led to this book. It acknowledges the lofty standing of these history-citadels as a pivotal reference point for promoting heritage protection and awareness of sites that are the building blocks of local, regional and national identity. Research methodology tools help go beyond the ‘annals-and-antiquities’ approach. The Forts of Rajasthan recognizes the scope for refurbishing insights and revisiting assumptions.
