Based on Emperor Aurangzeb’s Court Bulletins (Akhbarat) from Rajasthan State Archives, Bikaner and credible Persian works, this book “Aurangzeb’s Iconoclasm” features paintings, court orders and other such material to bring out the nature of reign that Aurangzeb had unleashed. Many of these paintings, reproduced masterfully in miniature style from original documents kept in the state archives. They are now part of permanent exhibition at Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Museum of Indian History in Pune, set up by the author, Francois Gautier.

Clearly answers the question on the destruction of the Kashi Vishwanath temple, on Aurangzeb's orders, the site of the current Gyanvapi Masjid.
