INDeco believes that any object of the past, even a fragment of it can help in providing deeper and broader knowledge of our heritage and lifestyle, thereby creating links with our own forgotten history.
India has been an irresistible land, right from Alexander, Huien Tsang, Gengis Khan to the Mughals, Dutch, French and the English. To some she was a land of riches, and to others a destination for the soul. Irrespective of the reasons, India never failed to enthrall her visitors. Centuries later, there has been no change in the impact of India’s charm, however several historic monuments have been destroyed, artefacts stolen and oral traditions lost forever. Today, nature trembles where man passes. A Heritage once lost is lost forever. INDeco has reached a point where we are forced to look beyond the hotel. Typically when the government or a private party proposes to pull down a piece of heritage, natural or manmade, INDeco aims at finding solutions through media, legislation or public awareness in order to preserve it as in the case of Mint Palace.
Today, the Steve Borgia Indian Heritage Museum at each of our hotels has emerged as the single largest repository of contemporary objects, especially those from the last hundred years. Integrating the museums with the Hotels, redefines them as centres of differential learning and contemporary research. The hotel in itself is turned into a destination. Interestingly, local people become informants, suppliers and restorers of the Museum.
INDECO HOTELS LOOKS BEYOND THE HOTEL, THE REGION.PROTECTS AND CONSERVES MONUMENTS IN THE REGION. TYPICALLY WHEN THE GOVERNMENT OR A PRIVATE PARTY IS PULLING DOWN A HERITAGE, BUILT OR NATURAL, INDECO, IN ORDER TO SAVE THAT HERITAGE FROM DESTRUCTION DOES GO TO THE PRESS, COURT OR CREATES PUBLIC AWARENESS.IN THE PROCESS SEVERAL HERITAGE TAKE SHELTER IN OUR MUSEUMS.
