The Deccan Heritage Foundation is dedicated to promoting and preserving the Deccan's culture and history.
The Deccan region is one of India’s best kept secrets. Ancient and rich with almost three thousand years of tradition, the area has seen the rise and fall of countless kingdoms. Its modern life of vibrant festivals and bustling commerce is as lively now as it has ever been.
Outside of India its wonders — including some of the oldest surviving Buddhist temples in all of Asia and tombs of emperors which rival the Pyramids — are barely known and seldom seen. Millennia-old monuments are in constant danger of being torn down to make way for construction sites.
Our mission is to change that, and we need your help.
