Make your way across south India, exploring its kaleidoscopic past and dazzling heritage, right from its first inhabitants up to the Vijayanagara Empire.

Meet its royalty and courtiers, builders and sculptors, poets and authors, traders and merchants, spiritual leaders and devotees, and all the other people who went to make it a top destination of the time.

Separated from the north by the Vindhya mountains and surrounded on three sides by water, southern India developed its own unique features - with outstanding rulers, incredible literature, spellbinding architecture, stunning dance forms and delicious food.

Written in an easy style, by theme, and peppered with illustrations, photographs and tips for museum or monument visits, this very first history of south India for children (but recommended for age groups) tells the thrilling and eventful story of the region's proud past.

Here are some fun facts from this book

The Kohinoor diamond was once the eye of a Kakatiya deity.

Sanskrit poets spun mesmerizing verse that could be read in reverse too.
Tantalizing Malabar spices flavoured the most lavish ancient Roman banquets.

Come join us for a captivating and enjoyable session with author Dr. Pradeep Chakravarthy as he dazzles you with the brilliance of South India.
