Steeped in history, culture, art, architecture and folklore, Delhi, Agra, Fatehpur Sikri is a unique and arresting portrait of three cities and six epochal monuments that have lived through some of the most pivotal moments in Indian history.*ABOUT THE SERIESCombining powerful storytelling with deep, recent scholarship, the Magnificent Heritage series uses multidisciplinary approaches to showcase a fresh perspective on heritage sites and storied cities, locating them in their larger geographical, sociocultural and historical contexts.
