Delhi Historical Glimpses

R.V. Smith (Author)
Synopsis Everyone coming to the beautiful historic city of Delhi is fascinated by its wealth of cultural heritage – from the ordinary settlements to the imperial precincts. It is almost like a never-ending dialogue to know more about the cultural and architectural heritage of the city.

The book gives the facets of a historical city, with its monuments and the legends connected with it. This, is, however, not just another book on Delhi. It links the monuments, and many neighbourhoods of the city, with events in history. Most of the contents are related to the medieval period, though one will find scattered references to the dim past peeping out of the crust of the latter-day events.

One has to give credit to the brilliance of the author, R.V. Smith, whose passion for several years has been to discover and collect stories and legends about the histories of Delhi’s many monuments, known and unknown.

The book is thus a valuable addition to the literature on the Capital.
