Architecture is history written in stone
Architecture is history written in stone. We, at Mahira Foundation, are a multi-faceted cultural organization trying to incorporate our tangible and intangible cultural heritage into people’s lives. We want to bring the history lessons to life for the class, and enable pupils to develop a deeper understanding of the people and places that have shaped society today. A variety of experiences can bring history alive for the participants, at every level of their education.
Visits to sites where the things we learn about in history actually happened can serve as a catalyst for sparking learner’s imagination and showing them a world beyond the textbooks. A heritage walk to a historical site can put what one studied in the school classroom into context, and many sites offer interactive, hands-on and immersive experiences specifically designed to meet the needs of different groups across the key stages.
Mahira Foundation organizes heritage walks in different parts of India with experienced walk leaders with ample knowledge about the sites. Our experience in conducting heritage walks for almost five years has been further enriched by subject experts who are proficient walk leaders for a diverse set of people-from school children to older generations. Our interest in understanding this city has led us to explore it extensively, so much so that today we can guide people and satisfy them with our knowledge acquired through various sources including books, anecdotes heard from locals and personal experience.
