I know basic topology like connectedness, compactness, product and quotient spaces, uryshon lemma etc. I have been looking for a book that gives more geometric interpretation of the subject. Any suggestion will be appreciated.

You might be interested in the book Introduction to Topological Manifolds by John Lee. The preface states that a more accurate title for this book might have been "Introduction to Topology with an Emphasis on Manifolds."

  • $\begingroup$ @user398623 It doesn't assume prior knowledge of topology, and it can be used as an introduction to topology something like Munkres. So I think it's accessible to you. You can read the preface at the Amazon page I linked to, which might give you more of an idea if you have the prerequisites. $\endgroup$

You can read "A First Course in Geometric Topology and Differential Geometry" by Ethan D. Bloch. Also, "An Introduction to Geometric Topology" by Bruno Martelli makes a good read. By the way, a quick Google Search yields several results. Hope it helps.

Since you know that basis and want a beginner level book on topology from a more geometric perspective, I would suggest Sue Goodman's book Beginning Topology and Kinsey's Topology of Surfaces.
