“Indeco’s Indian Heritage Museum Houses India’s single largest civilian collection of rare & contemporary museum objects of a very wide variety”
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, Huein Tsang, Gengis Khan to the Mughals, Dutch, French and the English. To some she was the land of riches and for 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 historical monuments have been destroyed, artifacts stolen and oral traditions lost forever. INDeco has reached a point where we are forced to look beyond the hotel. Typically when the government or private party proposes to pull down a piece of heritage, natural or man-made, INDeco aims at finding solutions through media, legislation, or public awareness in order to preserve it as in the case of the mint palace.
Today, the Steve Borgia Indian heritage museum at each of our hotels 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 centers 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.
