UNESCO has inscribed 38 such sites in India, all of which are presented in this volume, together with beautiful illustrations and commentary by heritage experts and conservationists.

The cultural sites in India are a rich repository of the country’s glorious past from the earliest periods of rock art, Buddhist caves and Hindu temples, Sultanate and Mughal forts, palaces, tombs and memorials, medieval Hindu and Islamic cities, step-wells and observatories to Portuguese churches, Victorian and Art Deco ensembles to 20th-century industrial and modern heritage sites. The natural and mixed sites include national parks of exceptional natural beauty, flora and fauna and, sites of long interaction between people and the landscape.

The remarkable photography and photographic research of Rohit Chawla, one of India’s leading photographers today, brings the country’s World Heritage Sites to life. These curated images combine a keen sensitivity for his subject with an artist’s quest for meaning, and transform this publication into a thoroughly immersive experience.
