Mysteries and Marvels of Mughal Architecture

R. Nath (Author)

Entitled as it is, it deals with the mysteries and marvels of Mughal Architecture which the author came across during his study of this subject, for nearly half a century. The various aspects of Mughal architecture are uncommon and unique, and are not present in any other architecture. They are simply wonderful. They evoke innocent curiosity and make their history more interesting than fiction. In all, 155 plates (including digital images), 84 figures (drawing of plans, sections and elevations) and 5 Persian inscriptions and texts have been used to illustrate these mysteries and marvels. The monuments discussed in this book are veritable temples of Indian History, Culture, Art and Architecture, and their preservation, in pristine originality, is important as a subject of historical and archaeological study of National Heritage.

About the author

R. Nath

Prof Ram Nath (born: 1933) was educated at St. John’s College, Agra. He passed his M.A. (History) in I Dn with first position. He did his Ph.D. and D.Litt. on Mughal monuments of Agra, Fatehpur Sikri and Delhi from the Agra University. He taught at Agra College as Lecturer (1965-75) and University of Rajasthan, Jaipur as Reader and Professor (1979-93). He is dedicated to higher research in Medieval Indian Architecture which he has studied in the field. He has worked at more than 45 historical sites, mainly of Western India, during the last three decades. He was the recipient of several research fellowships, including the prestigious Homi Bhabha Fellowship. He has authored more than 45 books, 10 monographs, 150 research-papers and 250 popular articles. He is internationally recognized as an authority on Mughal Architecture. His five-volume monumental series: History of Mughal Architecture is a classic of which three volumes and a supplement have been published. The series is, truly, his magnum opus. He has directed the course of the study of Indo-Muslim Architecture into the scientific channel and made it a perfect discipline, instead of a compendium of romantic tales, fanciful anecdotes and hearsay legends. He has traced the evolutionary process of this style, point by point, and emancipated it from sectarian and racial misnomers. His is, essentially, a study of the Land, the People and the Culture.
