The Meaning of the Boulder Dushanbe Teahouse
The Meaning of the Boulder-Dushanbe Teahouse interprets the art, architecture, and gardens of the Boulder-Dushanbe Teahouse, an architectural gem and a unique gift from the people of Tajikistan to their "sister city," Boulder, Colorado. In addition, it explores the cultural context of the teahouse and how the unique gift bridges an ever-widening east-west culture gap and brings the people of two sister cities closer together. The books will interest and serve as a resource for people involved in grass-roots efforts to build peace and international understanding, for members of sister cities organizations, and for students of Islamic. Persian, and Central Asian art, architecture, and cultures.
