The identity of a nation, community or a group is shaped by its past ideals and aspirations, which finds expression in its historical and cultural heritage. The cultural heritage of a land also includes intangible aspects like language and music and more tangible forms such as its buildings, monuments, archaeological sites, food, dressing, art forms etc. Preserving these requires efforts to protect and safeguard their physical structures. But preserving these also includes creating awareness and providing knowledge about their story and legacy so that future generations can appreciate them and become their proud inheritors.

The competition on the Local Architectural Heritage, being organized by the IKS Division of Ministry of Education at AICTE, is a fantastic chance for you to showcase lesser known or even famous traditional local heritage structures where you live.

Tell us what is the oldest structure in your village/ town/ city? Take a picture beside the heritage structure that highlights its speciality and send it along with a short description.

This competition is for school children for Classes 6 to 12.
