Summary

Explore the magnificent, ancient city of Lahore, Pakistan, and learn how its culture, infrastructure, and economy are being revitalized for the 21st century.

The cultural capital of Pakistan, and one of the world's most historically fascinating cities--Lahore--has retained much of its historic heritage despite centuries of turbulence. Today it remains a vibrant epicenter of commercial and cultural activity. Since 2007 the Aga Khan Trust for Culture has been working to preserve the walled city of Lahore. This book explores every aspect of that effort, including drafting a strategic master plan, mapping strategies for conserving monuments, gardens, and temples, renovating neighborhoods and landscapes, and developing environmental solutions. It focuses on specific sites, such as the breathtaking Shahi Hammam, or Royal Bath; the Shahi Guzargah heritage trail; the fabled Imperial Kitchen; Lahore Fort--a World Heritage site--and the Badshahi and Wazir Khan mosques. Filled with illustrations, maps, architectural plans, and detailed information about the engineering and conservation projects, this book is an unparalleled exploration of urban renaissance at its most ambitious, as well as a thrilling introduction to one of the world's most important cultural cities.
