…this edition remains a valuable and irreplaceable piece of documentation. —TimeOut Bengaluru
Beginning with the historical precedents that led to the selection of Udaipur as the new capital of Mewar State, the authors trace the evolution of the palace, its sequence of inner and outer chambers and the subsequent expansions, which added Mughal and British influences to its Mewar Rajput architecture. The authors, who are also conservation scholars, have outlined in this beautifully illustrated volume a master conservation plan that combines modern and traditional methods within the context of the history, condition and conservation needs of the City Palace Udaipur.
