Welcome to INTACH Delhi Chapter

About Us

The chapter has come a long way since its inception in 1984. Over the years, under the able guidance of its convenors and co-convenors, the chapter has undertaken several conservation projects and organized activities aimed at promoting heritage awareness among the public. The Chapter’s journey so far has had its fair share of trials and tribulations presenting the Chapter with invaluable insights helping it to move closer to its stated goals.

The Delhi Chapter has been actively involved in a variety of projects to promote the cause of heritage conservation. One of its first achievements has been the creation of a comprehensive inventory of built heritage in Delhi, which culminated in the publication of Delhi The Built Heritage: A Listing. Furthermore, the Chapter, over the years, has made several legal interventions in the form of Public Interest Litigations (PILs) or campaigns to save threatened heritage. The Chapter has also undertaken several projects in the city. These include the projects of St. James Church, State Bank of India in Chandni Chowk, Lado Sarai Gumti,Sultan Ghari Ruins, Mehrauli Archaeological Park, Signage all over Delhi, Heritage Buildings Signage in Chandni Chowk and Mehrauli Archaeological Park Heritage Trail and Signage.

The Chapter draws its strength from its broad based membership. The members have been responsible in guiding the course of the Chapter and have helped spread the heritage movement nationwide.

The Chapter’s pre-eminent position is also owed to its people who have constantly guided and executed the activities of the chapter. They provided the chapter with the necessary dynamism to ensure that the projects and other activities run smoothly.
