Product Description

Taj Mahal: Multiple Narratives presents a new perspective on the Taj Mahal and Agra. The city and its iconic monuments have often been written about, exclusive of each other. Many stories from Agra form the pillars on which the Taj Mahal was built. Pleasure gardens or a dusty township of the Middle Ages, Agra has many dimensions. The book looks at global events, national events and showcase contemporary buildings and subsequent events which transformed it from a sacred personal space to part of world heritage. The book is a broader and more accessible understanding of these stories, of Agra and the Taj Mahal.
