Why Join INTACH? ...Because heritage once lost is lost forever.
We need to protect our cultural legacy from further destruction not only because it gives us our identity, diversity and distinctiveness, but also because preserving heritage makes economic sense.
In the past one hundred years more historic monuments have been destroyed, more artifacts stolen, and more oral traditions lost forever than in all the years our civilization has been in existence. Every day, somewhere in the country, a historic building is pulled down in the name of progress. Others are damaged by flagrant vandalism or allowed to decay and fall.
You as a citizen of India have the right and the duty to put an end to this senseless destruction. You have the right to voice your concern and a responsibility to protect your environment and your heritage.
INTACH invites you as an Indian, to join the fight for conserving India's heritage. You don't have to be an architect, archaeologist or historian to join INTACH. You just have to care enough for India's heritage. See how you can join here. LINK to the membership question in FAQ
