Reflections – Humayun’s Tomb Complex Heritage Walk

As a part of this OUTdoors project, the project team designed and organised the second Heritage Walk on 17th December 2022 (Saturday), at Humayun’s Tomb Complex to commemorate the ‘International Day of Persons with Disabilities.’ The walk was organised byGlobal Shapers Gurugram Hub, in collaboration with ICOMOS India, Soulful Safaris and in association with our implementing partner Tradition Heritage Ecology (T.H.E.). It was guided by Jaya Nagar, Founder (T.H.E.) and was attended by 24 children along with 10 teachers and 6 volunteers, who provided the assistance during the walk.

The activity began at 09:00 am in the morning, at Humayun’s Tomb Entry Gate and ended at 11:00 am at Afsarwala’s Tomb. At the end of the walk the participants shared their delightful experience with Jaya ji and the team members, and enjoyed the refreshments.

This heritage walk was specifically curated for visually impaired participants with an objective to provide a sensory exploration of heritage and culture beyond the visual sight. It was carefully designed to address the UN SDG 2030 agenda and was successful in establishing the interlinkages with SDG 04 (ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and promoting lifelong learning opportunities for all),
SDG 10 (reducing inequalities), and SDG 11 (making cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable).
The project intent is to make the (natural and built) heritage sites, green and open spaces accessible to citizens of a city, including persons with disabilities.

The OUTdoors project team will be conducting similar walks in the upcoming months.
