INTACH has invited nominations from you for the Second Annual INTACH Heritage Awards, given to Bengaluru’s heritage buildings. Citizens can nominate the heritage buildings that they think deserve an award — the beautiful ones that make you sigh, the charming ones that you think gave Bengaluru its unique charm, the hoary old ones that tell stories of our past.

These awards help to showcase Bengaluru’s heritage, and to keep heritage in the public eye, so do take a moment to nominate a building!

Awards will be given in the categories of Public (Government-owned), Private (institutional) and Private (Residential). The buildings should have been built before Independence. Selected buildings, as judged by a jury, will receive an award and a citation.
