‘At the Core’ gives an insight into the cultural influence on the built heritage of Surat. It chronicles the time before Rander was a part of Surat, having developed much before Surat. When affluent Jains from Rander crossed Tapi river, they took with them their wealth and skills and settled in Surat. From there began the story of Surat as we know it today. It is said that flags of 84 countries used to fly high at Surat port. The initial settlement grew; Suryanagar became Surat; the urban fabric became finer and the city prospered.--Book cover.
