About the Book

The Ultimate Taj Mahal is written from the unique perspective of a highly acclaimed architecture academician. The book covers a wide spectrum of deliberations – beginning with discussing the art and aesthetics embodied in the Taj Mahal; placing Taj Mahal in context with the cultural, political, and architectural milieu of India; the factors and precedents leading its creation; culminating with the technical and aesthetical analysis of this timeless monument.

The exclusivity of this book lies in the rarely seen architectural drawings of Taj Mahal and photographs of Taj Mahal from rare vantage points by the author himself; documentation of the hidden parts of the monument and the author’s distinctive discourse, a testimony of his immense experience of over 50 years of architecture education.
