Back of the Blog – Indian Architecture by Takeo Kamiya

We all travel. If you are interested in visiting places which showcase India’s heritage like us, then chances are that you need to do lot of research to get details about the place. These are places which are outstanding from Architectural perspective, places where we get amazed at the beauty of the buildings, sculptures etc.
Few years ago we chanced upon a gem of a book on Indian Architecture by Mr. Takeo Kamiya. A well-known Japanese architect, he has done yeoman’s service in documenting India’s architectural heritage in simple and lucid way with lot of pictures. Ever since we saw this book, it has been a constant companion when we travel.
