A stunning photographic survey of India’s thirty-eight World Heritage Sites.

UNESCO chooses sites that have outstanding cultural value for all of humanity and has dedicated thirty-eight such sites in India, all of which are presented in this volume, together with commentary by architects and conservationists and stunning photographs by Rohit Chawla.

The cultural sites in India are a rich repository of the country’s long history, bearing witness to the creativity and influence of multiple communities, crafts, and religions. The sites covered in this volume are located across India. They include ancient rock art, Buddhist caves and Hindu temples, Sultanate and Mughal forts, medieval Hindu and Islamic cities, Portuguese churches, Victorian and Art Deco architecture, twentieth-century industrial heritage sites, and national parks of exceptional natural beauty.
