This book contains Four Parts with a total of 40 Chapters devoted to the different aspects of the environment of the Walled Cities. The conservation studies solely aim at preserving the old monuments, city walls, streets, gates etc. which are fast being spoiled by the parking and such other ironical means which adversely have affected the booming tourist population. There is widespread population. There is widespread desire to restore tourism industry in a big-way. Conservation of open spaces and to have a definite character of landscape for a city is advocated. The pollution due to air, industries, traffic, water, noise and wastes have exclusively been studies. For urban renewal, demolition of buildings is no solution, as that invites civil discontent as was witnessed in the case of Turkman Gate, Delhi. The future plans envisaged for the walled city include bulk services, fire safety measure, development controls, conceiving greater walled city plans, formulation of new projects, role of Architects in maintenance of the buildings, public participation and study of Mohanism.
