InterGlobe Foundation (IGF) has been a trendsetter in promoting heritage and culture in India. Some of its major projects since 2014, include scoping, conservation and cultural revival of Abdur Rahim Khan-I-Khanan’s mausoleum in Delhi, cultural mapping and documentation of ten select cities, the restoration of stepwell “Indra Kund” in Delwara; and research on Qutub Shah Mausoleum in Hyderabad and Lal Bagh Palace in Indore. Keeping with its commitment to strengthen the heritage conservation work, InterGlobe Foundation is launching the InterGlobe HERITAGE Fellowships.
With the world losing its tangible and intangible cultural heritage faster than it can be documented, IGF seeks to bring together a cross-section of the public in documenting and researching the cultural heritage of India and the fellowships are a step in this direction.
