Saleem Beg, convener INTACH, J&K Chapter, was the guest speaker on the session.
Beg made a comprehensive presentation on the rich Heritage & Culture of Kashmir and highlighted the “efforts of INTACH in creating awareness among the masses and the administration for conservation and restoration of our heritage and culture.”
Beg dwelt at length on the topic of Heritage & Culture and role of international bodies.
He said “the heritage of Kashmir is as multi-dimensional as the variegated backdrop of its physical exuberance which has inspired it all along.”
He said that Kashmir has contributed a distinct stream of architecture to the world in the form of wooden vernacular architecture.
The use of wood and its conversion and stylization into elements of building technology as well as craft forms is typical of its style.
He added that Srinagar is one of the few surviving representations of medieval cityscape and efforts are needed at all levels to conserve its beauty and heritage.
Prof Shabir A Bhat, Director Business School, University of Kashmir while welcoming the guest speaker said that “INTACH, J&K Chapter is doing a great work and we appreciate its efforts in preserving our cultural heritage and ensuring its global recognition.”
