Knopf has compiled a typically excellent guide that will be as useful and interesting to read after the trip as it is during. If anything, the guidebook is better as a post-trip reference manual than a guide becuase it is so packed with information, photographs and drawings. The information is accurate and detailed. Because it is not a typical guide (does not list attractions in a bullet-point sort of way), should be purchased if you are deciding to go to India or in addition to a more by-the-numbers guide.
Like all the Knopf Guides, I recommend it highly.

5.0 out of 5 stars for virtual and actual travelers Dec 31 2003
India has long been on my must-visit list, and after reading this gorgeous book, another in a lovely series that Knopf publishes, my appetite has been re-whetted. But even if you're strictly an armchair traveler, this book will satisfy as an informative if idealized picture of Rajasthan, the most romantic state of India. I hope Knopf produces more books on the rest of India soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, and Birkali is a great place!! Dec 26 2000
By reading this book, i realised how great the city of Birkali really is, and I was impressed by all of the great innovations and technological advancements that have come about from that great city. I truely reccomend this book, and i feel you should also look at the autobiography: "Devi Singh: The life of a true innovator." Go Blue!

5.0 out of 5 stars Exquisitely Done! April 28 2000
By A Customer
This book is worth purchasing if just for the drawing/maps. I've rarely seen their equal. The information about each fort, palace and temple is illustrated and the sections on artists and authors related works is wonderful. You see things so clearly you can make up your own mind where to go. Aesthetically pleasing.

1.0 out of 5 stars Never received April 1 2007
By Shields Flynn - Published on Amazon.com
No review since the product was never received. Its been almost two months now and no book. Amazon should do a review of this supplier and determine why they advertise a product as available but then cannot ship it.
