Between the late sixteenth and early twentieth centuries, Banaras, the long-lasting Hindu center in northern India that may be regularly described as the oldest living city on this planet, was once reconstructed materially in addition to imaginatively, and embellished with temples, monasteries, mansions, and ghats (riverfront fortress-palaces). Banaras’s refurbished sacred landscape turned into the topic of pilgrimage maps and its spectacular riverfront was once depicted in panoramas and described in travelogues. In Banaras Reconstructed, Madhuri Desai examines the confluences, in addition to the tensions, that experience shaped this complex and remarkable city. In so doing, she raises issues central to historical in addition to latest Indian identity and delves into larger questions about religious urban environments in South Asia.
