[This book] is interesting, informative in many ways. It is not a mere travelogue. It is more than that. The author tries exploring historical, spiritual places on the way and connects it with the similar places in other countries…. He did lot of research on historical cities of India, Pakistan and Iran. The cities were selected on the basis of their significance, relevance in the history. The book is full of cultural, historical, religious references…the book is enjoyable to read.
