DELHI : A LIVING HERITAGE

Project Director: A. G. KRISHNA MENON, Editors: SWAPNA LIDDLE and ANNABEL LOPEG

2010, ix+232 pp. heavily illustrated, glossary timeline


This publication is part of the exhibition on the same theme as the title of the publication, jointly presented by Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts and INTACH, Delhi Chapter in December 2010. It showcases the abundance and the interrelated nature of the city's heritage
in a manner that few have attempted before. It has collated the large amount of data generated by INTACH, Delhi Chapter over the years, particularly for compiling the Heritage Route Project, and it includes the contribution of several domain specialists on various aspects of Delhi's living cultural heritage.

The information presented is complex because the city's historical and cultural narrative is complex, but its message is simple: the past and the present dovetail to define Delhi's unique urbanscape and together with the natural and intangible heritage of the city it characterizes the 'living heritage' of the city. Seen in this light, it makes a compelling case for Delhi as a World Heritage City.
