The Heritage Project, an initiative of RPG Foundation, works to bring back to glory, sites of cultural
and social importance. It aims to help the masses engage with, relive, and experience our heritage
through practical new approaches, keeping in mind the evolving, fast paced world.
One of our flagship initiatives is “The Banganga Revival Project”. The Banganga Precinct is located at Mumbai and is a State Protected Monument under the Maharashtra Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Sites and Remains Act, 2010. In collaboration with the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM) and Directorate of Archaeology and Museums, Government of Maharashtra (DoAM), we are working to uplift the community spaces around the Precinct. This upliftment is driven by refurbishment initiatives as well as initiatives which help maintain Banganga’s heritage status. Some of the initiatives under The Banganga Revival Project are –
Further, we are working with Urban Design Research Institute (UDRI) to execute a comprehensive interpretation plan through signage of the “Victorian Gothic and Art Deco Ensembles of Mumbai”. This collection of buildings was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site under the “Cultural Site” category. This comprehensive interpretation plan through signage aims to create awareness and a sense of public responsibility towards these heritage sites. This signage plan is mindful of the historic fabric, streetscape, buildings, users etc. while enhancing the heritage consciousness of the city.
