HERITAGE WALK TO CUBBON PARK & St.MARKS CATHEDRAL
Our constant endeavour to expand the spectrum of imagination for our students at JD Institute has helped us take a step into learning design through our own culture and heritage. Bangalore is the oldest city in the country and many of us are not aware of the same. Many facts like this unfolded to our students by the heritage walk organised by JD Institute of Fashion Technology in collaboration with INTACH.
The Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH) is a non-profit organization set up in 1984 with a mandate to protect and conserve India’s vast natural, built and cultural heritage. The INTACH Bangalore team comprises architects, planners, engineers, writers, and others who try to preserve the cultural legacy of the city by creating awareness, mediating between the government and the public, offering architectural and engineering consultation to owners of heritage buildings, and documenting heritage structure.
