About the Event

A unique part of India that is associated with the best living traditions in craft, cuisine, houseboats and shikaras, rushing mountain streams, and snow-clad mountains, Srinagar is a garden of paradise. Srinagar: An Architectural Legacy, a book written by our walk leader Janab Feisal Alkazi explores the history and architectural heritage of this 500-year-old city bringing to life its rich past, with its different eras of rulers who made the Valley a part of their empire. To understand the present context of the city, the book takes on a series of walks giving readers a chance to get a sense of the architectural culture, as well as the dynamic interplay of civic life, religion, and trade in the city. This talk will focus around this book and Mr. Alkazi's experience in Srinagar.
Youth for Heritage Foundation also feels proud to announce that Mr. Alkazi himself will take us through the lanes of Srinagar and tell us about its rich culture and heritage in September. We have organized a trip to Srinagar with him. You can also be a part of this trip. To know more, click here.
