Afghanistan: Preserving its Historic Heritage: The AGA Khan Historic Cities Programme
This book features the work of the Aga Khan Trust for Culture (AKTC) in Afghanistan and contains detailed information on the conservation of one hundred sites and monuments carried out over a fifteen-year period. Projects presented in the book include the early 16th-century garden founded by the Mughal Emperor Babur in Kabul, the vast Ikhtyaruddine Citadel complex and other Timurid-era monuments in Herat, and the late 8th-century early Islamic Noh Gunbad Mosque in Balkh. This book, complemented by specially commissioned photography, presents a selection of the Trust's key projects as an informative guide for a general audience, academics, and conservation professionals.
