This book captures the ambience of these three cities, in words and pictures, blending them together to offer a fascinating glimpse of enduring India. .

The Kaleidoscope that is India comes to evocative life in its capital, Delhi, where a succession of cities have influenced the country's fortunes over centuries. Here, powerful empires have left behind their impress in a celebration of ritual festivities, art, music, and dance, in food, and in that touchstone of great civilizations - monuments which have stood the test of time..

If Delhi provides a tantalizing glimpse of India's history, caught in a time-wrap of the past and present, then Agra - once also the capital of the country - is a shrine for worshippers of beauty. .

At the third end of this golden triangle is Jaipur, the provincial capital of Rajasthan. Established by the solar-descended Kachwaha dynasty, here is medieval India preserved with all its splendor of palaces and forts, of temples and crafts, of color, pageantry and celebration.
