This book is devoted to the monuments of Ahmadabad, the premier city of Gujarat. With its many mosques and tombs dating from the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, Ahmadabad preserves some of the finest Indian Islamic buildings, though these are little know outside the region. The book includes such diverse architectural traditions as the Hindu and Jain temples, the step-wells, and houses with intricately carved woodwork. The book is generously illustrated with photographs and line drawings. Maps provide the locations of monuments within the city and its surrounding environment.
