The Cultural Legacy of Lucknow

A coffee table book on the city of Lucknow, which showcase the tehzeeb, nafasat and nazaqat associated with the city lend it a romantic touch, making it a unique place on the map of the country. Evenings here come alive with the strains of music, ghazal, gayaki and kathak now mingling with rock music and Latino dance perhaps, but a scintillating Sham-e-Avadh is a promise that is always kept and has been maintained since times immemorial. The glossy pages are a tribute to the city, showcasing its history through a bright pictorial coverage of its multiple monuments and heritage sites, while the newly mushroomed current landmarks too find place, making it a book on the city, then and now.
