The book covers various periods and styles of Indian architecture, such as the Indus Valley civilization, the Mauryan and Gupta empires, the Buddhist stupas and monasteries, the Hindu temples and sculptures, the Islamic mosques and tombs, the Mughal and Rajput palaces and forts, the colonial and modern architecture, and more.
