Ahmedabad: A World Heritage City

ahmedabad amdavad historic architecture books unesco world heritage city

Announcing the 2nd book on ahmedabad

My first book was released earlier in 2020 and it comprises 220+ pages with over 500 images. The book has been well received by a global audience. At the same time, my readers started asking for a coffee table format book printed on high-quality paper to render magazine quality images. So, that is what the 2nd book is about. It has about 150 images over 55 pages. The end result is a stunning visual treat.

You can get a preview of the full by downloading it for FREE at Google Play.

Below you can order both the books in print.
