Rather dry but incredibly detailed, and presumably well re-searched, this provided me with more information about Banares than I could ever want, or need, to know. 2 stars because it would be an excellent resource but far too involved for someone like me who was looking for a travel book in a more general sense.
There's nothing wrong with this book, it's just boring. Some of it is good, when she discusses the various Shiva cults and so forth. But a lot of it is details: town geography, details of who-worshiped-whom-when, and other things that weren't that interesting for a non-Hindu general reader.
