Ageless India Book 5
About the Book
The material, man-made heritage of India rests in the extraordinary range of ancient and contemporary cities and historical forts; in the grand palaces and private havelis, the mansions and homes; in the temples, shrines and places of worship dedicated to all faiths and religions; in the gardens and tombs; even great institutions of learning. The architectural expertise spanning millenia, embellished with fine surface decoration representing time, age and purpose, makes this legacy of India unsurpassed, precious and fragile. This collection of photographs by conservation architect Abha Narain Lambah establishes the urgent need for conservation and preservation. India must take ownership of her varied and layered past to conquer the future. This compendium is merely the tip of a formidable khazana.
