About the Book

This coffee-table book is a tribute to and celebration of the rich heritage and architectural grandeur of Patiala House. Though situated in the heart of Lutyens Delhi, its beauty got lost in the hustle and bustle of the business of courts. This book captures the journey of Patiala House from a Patiala plot to a royal palace to a seat of justice whilst chronicling its history through documents and oral testimonies/messages of some of its occupants. It takes one on a visual odyssey of Patiala House showcasing its architectural features like the conglomeration of chhatris, a long continuous chajja, protruding balconies, the jaalis that allow comfortable cross-ventilation, floor designs and stair railings with motifs of a peacock reigning supreme. The book captures some of the high-profile cases tried at Patiala House Courts like, the Parliament attack, BMW hit-and-run case, Phoolan Devi murder, Jessica Lal murder, and Nitish Katara murder, to name a few. Patiala House: Palace to Seat of Justice is a treasure trove for historians, culture enthusiasts, students, litigants, lawyers and judges alike.
