Various structures and monuments were established and maintained during this period in India. ’The Heritage walk’, one of the programs by the Communications team of the National Council for India aims to make our community and particularly the youth aware of the importance of our cultural and historical heritage and inculcate a sense of pride and appreciation of our historic cultural heritage.
