Indian Heritage Society

Objective

To restore India’s heritage structures in order to maintain the essence of its historical significance.

To rejuvenate and bring historical spaces alive, creating awareness among the younger generation.

Project

The Narotam Sekhsaria Foundation has maintained a strong relationship with the Indian Heritage Society for more than 10 years, bound by the common objectives of conservation and promotion of heritage structures. The Foundation has been closely associated with the Indian Heritage Society’s restoration efforts of the Ganpati Temple and the Rameshwar Temple in the Banganga Complex. This support rendered by the Foundation helped to facilitate the restoration process, including an extensive study of the physical condition of the structures, the materials used, and the mode of restoration which was carried out by a team of conservation architects and consultants.
