Description
About The Book

Burhanpur Travel Guide takes the reader into the marvelous, half-hidden world of a small town on the southern border of Madya Pradesh, once a major outpost of the great Mughals and now a repository of exquisite medieval architecture and forgotten histories.

This is where Shah Jahan lost his beloved queen, Mumtaz Mahal, a tragedy that made the emperor immortalize his love in the marble edifice of the Taj Mahal.

Burhanpur and its outskirts have masterpieces of architecture that include the magnificent fort of Asirgarh, that was once known as ‘Dakkhan ka Darwaza’ or Gateway to the Decan, the splendid Badshahi Qila on the banks of the Tapti and the Mahal Gulara.

From the many mosques where the faithful have gathered over the centuries, to the Dargah-e-Hakimi, foremost pilgrimage for Bohra Muslims, the hallowed temple of Ichhadevi and the Rajghat Gurudwara and Gurudwara Bari Sangat, where the first and last Sikh Gurus meditated – Burhanpur has emblems of almost every facet of medieval Indian history, and will make a rewarding journey for the curious traveller and the history buff alike.

With over 125 stunning photographs and an up-to-date Practical Information section, this guidebook is a perfect companion for not just the intrepid tourist but also the armchair traveller.

Testimonials
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)
Hithesh, USA

You guys are beyond amazing. The books you provide not many places have and I for one am so thankful to have found you.
Lulian, UK
This is my first purchase from Exotic India and its really good to have such store with online buying option. Thanks, looking ahead to purchase many more such exotic product from you.
Probir, UAE
I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
EB Cuya FIGG, USA
