Excerpt from Gardens of the Great Mughals
Architecture in India is still a living art, practised on the principles which caused its wonderful development in Europe in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries; and there, conse quently, and there alone, the student of architec ture has a chance of seeing the real principle of the art in action. And the shrewd Bernier's delightful dictum: The citadel contains the Seraglio and other royal edifices; but you are not to imagine that they are such buildings as the Louvre or the Escurial. The edifices in the Fort have nothing European in their structure; nor ought they, as I have already observed, to resemble the architecture of France or Spain. It is sufficient if they have that magnificence which is suited to the climate.
