Water tanks
Hi,
I'm an italian student of Architecture.
I'm starting my graduation thesis on Mehrauli Village and in particular Hauz-i-Shasmi. So, I want to o make a comparison with other water tanks and I wish to research about the role of water in Hindu architecture.
I have just buy the book: Water architecture in South Asia.
Could you possibly recommend me some materials I can refer to for my studies?

Thank you for your willingness
Kind Regards
Federica Renzi

Water tanks
in passing, Just in case the words "water tank" are mistaken for an armoured and tracked military vehicle.

The origin of this use of the word was because the vehicle was a secret weapon introduced late in the First World War and so was given the code words "water tank" as a disguise for use in messages, etc.
