The Guide to the Architecture of the Indian Subcontinent

This guidebook introduces the architecture of the Indian subcontinent including Bangladesh in great detal, revealing a great architectural culture that is richly different from that in Japan, Europe, and America. It gives the armchair traveler a visual feast with a large number of photographs, which will transport the reader to the site without having to actually travel to these magnificent but far-flung monuments. Indian architecture through the ages is included, from ancient times to the present day, along with Islamic architecture and Colonial style architecture during the British rule. Important buildings are illustrated with many photographs of the exteriors and interiors.
