Almost every Indian city is replete with rich culture, traditions, sacred spaces and historical sites that illustrate the country’s unique heritage. At a time of rapid modernisation of public spaces in India — sometimes to the detriment of heritage sites and cultural traditions — it becomes critical to preserve the heritage, making it accessible to all for the sake of posterity. Since most heritage sites are not featured online, the e-Heritage Project seeks to collaborate with communities to bring heritage into the digital space with the following objectives:
- Build capacity of the local community to document heritage in their area
- Educate and involve the local communities in the preservation of heritage sites, both physically and virtually
- Utilise the Internet as an information platform for public education about the Indian heritage
In an endeavor to achieve the same, Digital Empowerment Foundation in partnership with UNESCO India has launched two pilot websites for Shahjahanabad and Chanderi to digitally enhance their heritage and showcase the potential of the areas through rich text, photographs and videos.
