Few civilizations have been endowed with a history as complex, encompassing and multifarious as Indias or perhaps, more accurately, that of the greater Indian subcontinent. While much has been researched, written, filmed and in other ways documented about the various dynasties that have left indelible marks on the Indian landscape, not many books have addressed the primordial relationship between a people and their land. Nowhere is this better illustrated than in the gardens of India. Gardens of Delight elucidates that remarkable process of history, not seen in other parts of the world. This book is divided into four sections: the first discusses the types of historical gardens and their traditions; the second expounds on the literary references to gardens, both ancient and modern, with corresponding pictorial depictions; the third details the different kinds of religious or sacred gardens, tomb gardens, palace gardens and encampment gardens; and the fourth traces the evolution of the garden in modern times.
RAHOUL B. SINGH studied architecture at the Rhode Island School of Design, USA, where he specialized in History, Theory and Criticism of Art and Architecture. He presently lives in New Delhi, India, where he divides his time between practicing architecture, teaching and writing.
