Product Description

The tale of two magnificent cities from the mythic age of ancient India, cities of great splendour, unimaginable wealth and prestige.

There are such fanciful tales around that I decided to investigate the original sources like the Mahabharata and others. In the great texts. the cites came alive, so here they are. Taken from the Sanskrit texts themselves, here is the mostly unknown story of cities which seem dreamlike in their beauty but also surprisingly modern and urban.

Krishna’s mystic and golden Dwarka, city of many gates, which sank at the end of the age. Dwarka was a fortress built to be impregnable. The only attack which almost succeeded came from the air.

The crystalline, shining white of Indraprastha, imperial city of the Pandavas, the stuff of legend. Indraprastha had a magical council hall where water seemed to be a floor and doors seemed like walls, but it also ran out of space and began building upwards, taller and taller like any modern township.

A third article, Mahabharata, the Biggest Book of them all, reveals the wonder of the largest, most complex and most enthralling epic.

Let these brief articles take you on an unforgettable journey into an ancient age and the forgotten world of India’s lost cities.
