Heritage Walks For Children

ParentCircle

Culture and heritage play an important role in the life of children. A good way to pass the values of heritage to future generations is by organising heritage walks.

Many cities hold heritage walks. Intachdelhichapter.org, for instance, has been holding heritage walks in various places in Delhi since 2005. It aims to create an awareness among the citizens of Delhi about areas of historical importance, help citizens and tourists relate to the historic parts of the city in a more personal and intimate manner and draw attention of the local population towards the historic value of settlements.

Heritage walks are not to be confused with walking tours. During heritage walks, selected heritage sites are visited and a trained guide regales the participants with stories and explains the heritage value of the sites in relation to the architecture, history and culture.

According to maharashtratourism.gov.in, heritage walks are often landmark-oriented, i.e., a tour of a landmark site of heritage value such as the Taj Mahal or the Ajanta and Ellora sites.

Parents should research the family’s cultural roots and discover the practices that fit with the family’s lifestyle. It can be anything from celebrating the country’s most popular holiday to even incorporating customs into holidays that one already celebrates.

With heritage walks being organised in different parts across the country ranging from Lucknow to Srinagar and Delhi to Mumbai, they are the new cool thing for children.
