Balochistan Architecture, Craft, and Religious Symbolism


This research work explores the living tradition of Baluchistan and provides a deeper understanding of its religo-cultural aspects. The research first focuses on the social environment of Baluchistan, in order to understand the input of local culture and tribo-religious influences of local architecture. The Baluchi lifestyle is analysed on a broad plane, taking into account native architecture including mosques and symbolic minarets as key factors, together with their design, characteristics, social contextualisation and methods of production.
