Publisher Description

RECENTLY UPDATED FOR 2022! With more than 80 high-resolution images, videos and detailed tour itinerary, this is the definitive travel guide to India's Delhi, Agra and the Taj Mahal.



Delhi and Agra are the former capitals of Islamic dynasties that controlled much of the Indian subcontinent from the 13th-19th centuries. Together, the cities hold an unrivaled collection of art and architecture: mosques with towering minarets that call the faithful to prayer; gardens with designs that recreate Quranic paradise; and tombs with inlaid stone decoration that spark contemplation of the divine. Not to mention the culmination of it all: the Mughal dynasty’s famed Taj Mahal, an “equal to it the eye of the Age has not seen under these nine vaults of the enamel-blue sky.” It is yours to discover.
