    Book details

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.

Abha Narain Lambah is a practicing conservation architect with 8 UNESCO Asia Pacific Heritage Conservation Award citations to her credit. She is the recipient of the Sanskriti Award, Eisenhower Fellowship and Charles Wallace Fellowship and has been consultant to World Monuments Fund, Global Heritage Fund, Deccan Foundation and ICCROM. Malvika Singh, publisher of the monthly journal Seminar, is a well known columnist.
