 DESCRIPTION
spacer
The Faridkot State was one of the Sikh State created in Malwa region of the Punjab during the later half of the eighteenth century. It came into its own under Raja Pahar Singh (1827-49) when the British extinguished the neighbouring mighty kingdom of Lahore. During the next one century, It prospered under Raja Wazir Singh (1849-74), Raja (1898-1906), the Council of Regency (1906-16), Raja Brij Inder Singh (1916-18), the Council of Administration (1918-34), and Raja Har Indar Singh (1934-48). Throughout this period. The rulers and aristocracy built a vast variety of buildings which included forts, palaces, havelis, Administrative buildings, educational buildings, hospitals, bazaars, gurdwaras, mosques, temples etc. Collectively, these building represent the style of Architecture that flourished during the second half of the nineteenth and the first half of the twentieth century in the Sikh States of Punjab, which has not been studied so far. The book in hand is a pioneering effort in this direction. The book comprises eight chapters. The first chapter delineates the geographical and historical background of the region comprising the erstwhile Faridkot State. An analysis of the salient architectural features of the monuments is contained in the second chapter, The remaining six chapters document the monuments of the State on typological basis. The third chapter covers forts and royal palaces. The buildings for state machinery are recorded in the fourth chapter. The next chapter contains the survey of public secular buildings. The residential buildings form the subject matter of the sixth chapter. The seventh chapter covers memorial and the last chapter comprises a study of public religious buildings. These chapters are followed by an epilogue, an appendix, a glossary and a bibliography. The text is illustrated with 9 maps, 131 drawings, 35 colour and 196 monochrome plates. The book thus tries to capture the architectural heritage of Faridkot in all its rich splendour. It will prove to be an invaluable asset not only to the academicans, architects and libraries but also to the layreader.
