Forts & Palaces Of India

Amita Baig (Author)

The Indian subcontinent offers a fascinating collection of historic forts and royal palaces waiting to be explored. Over the centuries, as kingdoms rose and fell or expanded into mighty empires, the need for protection against invaders resulted in the building of magnificent forts and fortified citadels across the country. Many of these fortresses sheltered entire cities, as well as royal palaces and pleasure gardens that were known for their splendour and luxury.

Forts and Palaces of India brings together a unique architectural legacy - from ancient forts mentioned in Hindu epics to strongholds built by a succession of rulers, arranged geographically within a historic or aesthetic context. The narrative provides glimpses of history enlivened by stirring tales of valour and sacrifice while lavish colour photographs reflects the cultural heritage of each palace and fort, bringing the royal experience to life for the reader.
