Monuments of India

 
Subinoy Gangopadhyay (Author)
Synopsis India possessed knowledge of building stone monuments before the Christian era. Ancient Indians evolved the tripartite classification of rock and formulated guidelines for use of different types of stone for architectural and sculptural works. The vast terrain of India is endowed with good quality building stones that influenced construction of innumerable stone monuments still surviving in different parts of the country. Monuments spread over different parts of India including all those of World Heritage status have been described in this work with respect to their architectural style, construction approach, site condition, foundation, building stones and quarry sites. They represent diverse types of structure (e.g. stupa, rock-cut cave, temple, mosque, tomb, church etc.) constructed of different varieties of building stones during early historic to British time. A vast collection of colour photographs and maps illustrate the mystery and marvels of the monuments under description in this book and it will be a treat to all readers including the tourists and arm-chair travelers who are interested to see the creative excellence of Indian monuments.
