about us

The company was set up in 2007 with the primary aim of creating awareness about our rich legacy and we have been doing this through various media. We have so far published a number of coffee table books and 2 quarterly magazines –‘Heritage India’ (24 issues) for our company and ‘Maharashtra Unlimited’ (18 issues) for the Department of Tourism of Maharashtra, which won the ICE (In-house communication excellence) award at the national level for 4 consecutive years. We have also conducted training workshops for teachers of History and Social Sciences, for guides for the MTDC and conducted quiz programmes and excursions for school children. Heritage Tours across the country in company of experts is another of our specialised fields of activity. We create unique experiences through interactive trips to heritage sites.
