Madras Inherited has worked with government agencies such as the Chennai Metropolitan Development Authority on heritage listing and documentation projects. We look forward to engaging with governmental and non-governmental agencies to further the cause of heritage conservation and sensitivity in the city.


Bringing the people of Chennai closer to their heritage is at the heart of everything we do at Madras Inherited. While a great number of heritage enthusiasts and curious explorers join us on our heritage walks and workshops, the outreach programs attempt to go beyond this demographic and create instances in the city where people stumble upon events and installations where they get to reconnect with the city's many stories and cultures.

Heritage Education

Heritage is our legacy and cultural identity that we pass on to the next generation. Tangible heritage, such as monuments, groups of buildings, historic and natural sites and intangible heritage such as oral traditions, performing arts and local knowledge systems form the city's heritage.

The vision of introducing Heritage Education at the school level stems from the need to broaden awareness about the state of heritage in the city and its preservation. Furthermore, integrating Heritage Education along with the school curriculum will enable students to have a holistic understanding of the history, architecture and heritage of the city.
