 DESCRIPTION
spacer
The seventh century Europeans, who traversed the Agra-Lahore Mughal Highway, showered high praise on it. The British traveller Thomas Coryat (1612-17) considered it an incomparable show of that kind ever surveyed by his eyes. Thomas Roe (1614-18), Ambassador of james I, the King of England to the Mughal court, praised it as ‘one of the great’ works and wonders o the world’. This high acclaim of the route prompted Subhash Parihar to study the route, travelling it stage by stage, in their footsteps. He thoroughly studied the rich architectural remain of the Highway in the forms caravansarais, bridges, kos-minars, baolis and tanks. A survey report of these remains forms the kernel of the book. The third chapter traces three major medieval routes in the Mughal Empire-Agra to Surat, Agra to Patna and Dacca, and Agra to Kabul – mainly on the basis of medieval travel accounts. The development of routes to the west of the river yamuna and evolution of the Agra-Lahore High form the subject matter of the fourth chapter. The fifth chapters present the historical background and analysis of the architectural character of types of the building for travellers, namely caravansarais, bridges, baolis, tanks and kos-minars.
