Patrons of the Ames Library of South Asia frequently request accounts and descriptions of the cities of South Asia. This guide serves as an index to the DS 412 and 413 (Travel accounts) section of the Ames Library for those works which have separately identified chapters or sections dealing with a particular city. Since most travelers to South Asia visited Agra, Benares, Bombay, Calcutta, Delhi, and Madras, which makes such accounts extremely easily accessible, accounts of these six cities are not provided in this guide. However accounts of Benares which were not written in English have been included.
Some of our online resources also have Traveler's Accounts. For example,
Travel Writing, Spectacle, and World History brings together hundreds of accounts by women of their travels across the globe from the early 19th century to the late 20th century.
