About INTACH Jammu and Kashmir
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.
Today, it is the country’s largest non-profit membership organisation dedicated to the conservation and preservation of our natural, cultural, living, tangible and intangible heritage.
Except for a core staff at the headquarters in Delhi, INTACH’s enthusiastic volunteers in a network of chapters in cities, towns and villages across the country are largely responsible for the spread of the heritage movement.
The INTACH JK team consists of multidisciplinary conservation experts 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.
