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.
