ARCHITECTURAL DRAWINGS OF MUGHAL ARCHITECTURE
We, THE HERITAGE, have been working on the monuments of Agra,
Fatehpur Sikri, Taj Mahal, Delhi, Ajmer, and other historical
sites in India AND Lahore in Pakistan, for nearly three decades. Of
these, the Agra Fort and the Taj Mahal at Agra; Buildings of
Fatehpur Sikri; and the Tomb of Humayun, Qutb Minar and Red Fort at Delhi
are UNESCO World Heritage Sites in India.
We have Architectural Sketches, Diagrams and Drawings (plans,
sections and elevations) of these monuments in our collection,
which belongs, originally, to Professor R Nath who had been
working in this field for nearly half a century and who has
authored 65 Books and 190 Research Papers on MUGHAL ARCHITECTURE.
It is an exclusive collection.
These drawings illustrate such architectural forms and features as
lay-out and plan; arches, alcoves, chhajjas, jharokhas and
used on the façade; domes, towers, minars, turrets, pinnacles and
chhatris on the superstructure; ceilings; and motifs and designs
of architectural ornamentation.
They illustrate unique features. For example, a wide variety of
trabeated arches, pendentives and flat stone ceilings, evolved in
this region, are wonderful feats of building techniques. These
drawings are basic tool for the study and research in this
discipline and these medieval engineering skills can also be of
immense use in modern architecture.
In order to promote higher study and research in Mughal
Architecture, we have built up, gradually, a corpus of nearly 1000
Architectural Drawings of plans, sections and elevations of Mughal
Monuments of Agra - Fatehpur Sikri, Delhi, Lahore, Ajmer, Bari,
Gwalior, Panipat and other sites. These drawings are available in
Five Sets Priced as Follows:
have been prepared on CorelDraw 11, with captions giving
architectural details and historical dates, and the respective
Index. We supply Laser printout of the
drawings of each set, bound in a file, with the respective DVD/CD.
These drawings bear our copyright and are supplied to the
universities institutes and archives for academic use only, direct by us,
without the intermediaries. These are not for resale.
This research material shall be greatly helpful in the study of
the Architecture of Islam in India, and we believe you need these
drawings. We look forward to hearing from you in reply on our email
