Delhi closer to UNESCO world heritage city status.

Posted on Tue, 01/17/2012 - 18:52 by easytours
 
Delhi - IndiaGateAs Delhi celebrates its 100 year anniversary as the capital of India, heritage conservation groups are designing guided tours and heritage walks to highlight the most important historical sites in the city. The Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH) is a non-profit organization designed to involve its members in protecting and conserving India’s vast natural, built and cultural heritage. They have now set their sights on Delhi as a heritage tourism destination.
The city of Delhi has a long history - the British capital, the foundation of which was laid in December, 1911, was planned by two leading 20th century British architects,

Edwin Lutyens and Herbert Baker, who embedded it with Victorian style grandeur. Today, after a century of growth, its citizens live in an environment where new elements are juxtaposed with old ones. Often centuries-old buildings and groups of buildings lie out of sight behind modern development. Sometimes new growth tends to overshadow the older areas of the city. But these areas and the communities that live in them represent the city’s history, tradition, heritage, culture, architecture and craftsmanship.
