Description

Delhi: The Emperor's City takes the reader through the Walled City: its intricate by-lanes, its colourful shops, its historical monuments, its magnificent mansions? The book is a rediscovery of chandni Chowk and its environs. Through the ages, Purani Dilli 'a city of legends and stories' has acquired a distinctive identify for its commerc...ial and cultural activities. Its hallmark is a genteel lifestyle that has withstood the test of time and retained its unique Ganga-Jamuni tehzeeb - the best of Islamic and Hindu etiquette. The peaceful coexistence of different faiths and cultures within its walls are a lesson in syncretic living worth remembering. Delhi: The Emperor's City celebrates the rich palimpsest that is the Walled City through is well-researched text and magnificent visuals, and is replete with a deep nostalgia for its old-world charm.
