The plan for this wonderful book was conceived by H H Cole, the then Superintendent of the Archaeological Survey of India. The full-sized Plans and Drawings were commenced at Vrindavan, by two surveyors, Thakoor Dass and Habeebulah, who were employed in obtaining measurements of the Temples and buildings, and assisted Cole in preparing pencil drawings on the spot. On his return to England in the summer of 1869 these drawings were completed and reproduced by means of photo-lithography. Cole and his team visited Vrindavan, Deeg, Goverdhan, and Fatehpur Sikri, in order to agree on the points of view which were most desirable to obtain in the buildings. The Mixed Hindu-Mahomedan style of Upper India was evolved under somewhat singular circumstances; and it is in illustration of the various forms it assumed that the Photographs and Plans of this work were produced.
