The Jewel of Sindh: Sama Monuments on Makli Hill
by Suhail and Yasmeen Lari
Yasmeen and Suhail have always been part of a small group of universally respected people in Pakistan. A lifetime of honest work has aroused genuine admiration for the architect-historian duo. Their earlier volume on Karachi has superseded all earlier work, and one has heard that they are preparing a volume on Lahore too. The reviewer is a great fan of Suhail’s ability to write history. Yasmeen’s expertise in cataloguing and describing architecture is wonderfully underpinned by Suhail’s grasp of the historical fact.

What a source of inspiration and a treasure trove of design these photographs could be to the designer and artist! This beautifully produced book leaves one eagerly looking forward to its companion volumes on the other tombs of the Makli Hills funery group.

A tour-de-force from two prominent Pakistanis who have done much to open our eyes to the valuable heritage - both archaeological and architectural - which we must protect for the benefit of the future.
