Heritage Revival, in association with Orison Foundation, is dedicated to the preservation and restoration of historical sites. One of our notable projects is the restoration of the iconic City Palace in Udaipur, Rajasthan, led by the prominent conservation architect, Ms. Aparna Desai. This joint effort between Heritage Revival, Orison Foundation, and the Archaeological Survey of India has successfully revived the architectural splendor of the palace, attracting thousands of tourists and generating revenue for local communities.

Preserving cultural sites is crucial for maintaining our connection to the past and ensuring that future generations can appreciate the rich heritage of our ancestors. These sites hold immense historical, cultural, and artistic value, and it is our responsibility to protect and restore them.

At Heritage Revival, we understand the importance of collaboration and partnership in achieving our preservation goals. By working closely with organizations like Orison Foundation and the Archaeological Survey of India, we are able to combine our expertise and resources to make a significant impact.

The restoration of the City Palace in Udaipur is a shining example of the success that can be achieved through such partnerships. This magnificent palace, with its intricate architecture and stunning views of Lake Pichola, is a testament to the grandeur of the Mewar dynasty. However, over the years, it had fallen into disrepair, losing its former glory.

Under the guidance of Ms. Aparna Desai, a renowned conservation architect, the restoration project began. The team meticulously studied the original blueprints, consulted historical records, and employed traditional craftsmanship techniques to ensure an authentic restoration. Every detail, from the intricate carvings to the vibrant frescoes, was carefully revived to its original splendor.

The restored City Palace now stands as a testament to the rich cultural heritage of Udaipur. Tourists from all over the world flock to witness its beauty and learn about the history of the region. The revenue generated from tourism not only benefits the local economy but also supports the ongoing preservation efforts.

Heritage Revival believes in the power of education and awareness in preserving cultural sites. We actively engage with local communities, organizing workshops, and awareness campaigns to instill a sense of pride and ownership in their heritage. By involving the community in the preservation process, we ensure that these sites are valued and protected for generations to come.

Our work goes beyond just restoring buildings; it is about preserving the stories, traditions, and memories associated with these sites. Through our efforts, we hope to inspire others to recognize the importance of cultural preservation and take an active role in safeguarding our shared heritage.

Join us in our mission to revive and protect our cultural sites. Together, we can ensure that these treasures are preserved for future generations to appreciate and cherish.
