"Behind the Gates of Glory and Facades of Fame lie unique stories of rise and fall, that teach us to never give in, in nothing great or small, in the march of history against the juggernaut of time. When Domes Dominate a Relief of Belief reveals the Architecture of History in the History of Architecture through abodes ...beyond the boundaries of death. The minarets dot the Is and cross the Ts of architecture, furnishing a Rosetta Stone, to untangle the web of history. The palaces of startling elegance provide visual biographies highlighting the salience of sailing in the sea of history and granting us a passport to the past." Ahmed Seddik
