Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 019808403X, Hardcover)

Fatehpur Sikri was an important political town and Mughal capital which emerged as a prominent socio-cultural centre with the distinctive architectural pattern. This book presents a multi-dimensional history of Fatehpur Sikri, a capital city under the Mughals. It discusses architectural traditions, town planning, economic centres, location of imperial and bureaucratic establishments, the bazaars, the waterworks, road networks, and residential areas to provide a wider understanding of the Mughal world. It traces the history of the town from the period before Akbar, an aspect hitherto untouched. The author has extensively studied the excavations along with primary and textual sources. He studies paintings, carvings, and architectural style and identifies for the first time many new structures like the Palace of Shahjahan and garden. With a number of plans, maps and photographs this book will be a definitive guide to the one-time capital of the Mughals.

This book will be useful for scholars and students of medieval Indian history, Mughal art and architecture, and the interested general reader.
