Padma Bhushan Dr. Ghulam Yazdani, O.B.E., was born on 22nd March, 1885 in Delhi. He was deputed to Hyderabad to organise the Archaeological Department of Hyderabad in 1914. Later he became the Director of the Department and served for 30 years till his retirement in 1943. The work done by him on preservation of monuments and exploration and excavation of relics of ancient civilization, particularly Ellora, Ajanta and Bidar, was so good that he won a name not only in India but also in Europe and the United States of America. Dr. Yazdani wrote several books, of which the present one – AJANTA – done in collaboration with John Allan of the British Museum and N.P. Chacravarty, Epigraphist to the Government of India, became an instant classic. The Introduction to this work was written by Lawrence Binyon.
Cosmo is proud to bring this classical work to the readers once again in a new setting.
