PREFACE
An age without architecture is impossible so long as human beings populate this world. The first nine chapters deal with Islamic architecture in India and the rest deal with the different styles developed all over India. Each one of the architectural styles is described against the back-drop of environment that influenced its development such as religious, social customs and historical conditions, followed by characteristic features and a few typical examples. The author has attempted to give in small compass, a comprehensive survey. So it is impossible to describe every work of architectural style. This had been attempted the book would have been filled with the names of the buildings, names of Architects and dates. A systematic presentation of the different styles of architecture all over India has been too long felt to be desired and this publication aims to satisfy the requirement. We hoped that the book will be found interesting not only to the students of Architecture and Engineering but also to the intelligent tourists as well as inquisitive Layman who is proud is his country's vast cultural heritage.
