Of all the metros in the country Delhi holds the distinction of being the nerve center of power not only in present times but also in the years past. This is all the more reflected in the multitude of old-world buildings that grace the historic landscape of the city. It comes as a surprise to know that many of these historic buildings are exiled from public view simply because nobody knows about their existence. Rakshanda Jalil’s book Invisible City: The Hidden Monuments of Delhi focuses on 49 such monuments and provides the reader with quick facts about the buildings, their surroundings, genesis and current conditions. Divided into seven short sections: Pre-Sultanate, Sultanate, Tughlaq, Saiyyid, Lodi, Mughal and post-Mughal, it has a foreword by the renowned writer Khushwant Singh. It is packed with pictures, illustrations and maps and is definitely a great resource for history buffs as well as to all those wishing to preserve the historical heritage of the city.Printed Pages: 342 with 293 photographs & 1 map.
