India’s built heritage is largely undocumented, and with the fast pace of redevelopment, we are rapidly losing the battle to preserve it. This is true particularly of our small towns and the rural areas. Our built heritage is a non-renewable resource and its loss is a permanent loss for our future generations. We need to act with a sense of urgency to conserve and document it.

We created the website and mobile app to list and document our unprotected built and natural heritage. While travelling you may see a historical monument, a building, a milestone on the road, or in a field and photograph it. Now you can upload the photo with the app and share it with thousands of others. A photograph you may have taken may be an undocumented heritage structure. By sharing it, you will add a missing piece to the database of our national heritage.

If we all join hands and share we can create the most comprehensive database of our built and natural heritage. Listing and documenting is the first step to protecting it.

After uploading the photo you will need to fill in a form. If you have the information fill in the entire form or you can add to the list by just uploading the photo, naming the structure and filling in the address. If you don’t have the address, the app which is GPS enabled will add the location automatically. If you have photos in your storage, you can upload them on our website.

You can search for heritage structures as per locality and generate heritage lists.
The website will also guide you on information related to heritage conservation. We will keep updating the information and welcome your contributions.

This is a crowd sourcing platform – send us your contributions and comments and help us improve our app and website. You can help us edit the list by writing in to us.

Your contributions to the list are not protected by copyright as this is a crowd sourcing and resource sharing platform, so please only upload the photos and information you are ready to share.

Any photographs you upload in the store are copyright protected. Please read the terms and conditions and license agreements carefully before using the app and website.
