The Archaeology and Monumental Remains of Delhi

 
Carr Stephen (Author)
Synopsis The present work contains a description and history of every object of archaeological or monumental interest in Delhi; beginning with the site of the semi-mythical Indra-Prastha, the capital of Yudishthira, which dates back to the year 1450 B.C., and concluding with the tomb of the Emperor Akbar II, who died in the year A.D. 1837. Carr Stephen’s description is marked by accurate details and history of the monuments alongwith English translation of inscriptions whenever these are available. The importance of The Archaeology and Monumental Remains of Delhi lies not only in its being an earliest account synthesizing the available information but also as a benchmark for the changes in the buildings and their landscape. The work is therefore of outstanding value not withstanding the change in perception due to new material and research. The work which has long been out-of-print is being re-issued for the use of historians, conservators, tourists, archaeologists and also for the lay-readers. A fresh introduction and a number of rare maps, aquatints and photographs have been added which further enhances the value of the work. The unusual variety of the subject and the notable richness of illustrations combine to make this a work of endless fascination.
