Activities

Walks

 We organize guided heritage walks to rekindle the interest of people and  youth in the historical spaces that they   may see every day, but do not notice.

Our 9 Heritage Walks explore the cultural construct of memory from ancient to modern times and the stories of the places, buildings and ruins. In short, they explore the relationship between "sense of time and "sense of place." At Destination Heritage it is important that places should be a part of the future and not just of the present.

The Basavanagudi landscape walk, Hanumanthanagar temple and art walk, Freedom Park walk, Cubbon Park walk, the Pete walks to name a few.
