In recent years, a few open-air museums have appeared in India which collect vernacular buildings in a single location by dismantling them and reassembling them piece by piece. This thread will highlight such efforts, as well as other attempts at preserving traditional buildings.

Hastha Shilpa Heritage Village, Manipal, Karnataka

Website: http://www.indiaheritagevillage.org/press.html




Hastha Shilpa Heritage Village is situated in Manipal, Karnataka. This heritage village is the brainchild of Vijayanath Shenoy, previously a bank employee with a fascination for elegant structures . With assortment of wooden artifacts and other remnants he had salvaged from the ruins of old structures in Dakshina Kannada and neighboring districts, 'Hastashilpa' was created. Hastashilpa is a fusion of a variety of architectural elements, recapturing the style of the traditional homes of the region on a hillock in Manipal.

The village extends to an area of about six acres, with eight museums. The museums display arts, crafts, paintings, and textiles of the region. The heritage village also houses a recording studio that preserves the video and audio tapes of the various vanishing folk art forms, a library, and a detailed documentation centre. The life and works of the cultural celebrities are displayed in the gallery. There is a well-equipped experimental theatre and an arts and crafts production-cum-training centre


1. Kunjur Chowkimane: A 185 year old house from Kerala

What a great thread! These photos somehow remind me of my elder relatives and take me to a world where the pace of life seems to be more leisurely and relaxed with a strong sense of community. Though our ancestors were not too rich, they still somehow led lives filled with happiness and greater substance.
