Srinagar's Amar Singh College conservation project recognised with UNESCO award

Amar Singh College of Srinagar is one of the oldest colleges in the city.

Its building was constructed nearly 80 years ago and now it has come under one of the seven conservation projects to be recognized with the 2020 UNESCO Asia-Pacific Heritage Awards for Cultural Heritage Conservation.

The award was announced by nine international conservation experts.

The deliberations were held online due to COVID-19 pandemic by INTACH's Kashmir Chapter.

The INTACH chapter in the Union Territory had carried out the conservation work at the Amar Singh College and it has brought back one of the most prominent institutional buildings to its glory.

Teachers, staff members and students of the college feel proud after this award was announced.

The project serves as a noteworthy model for safeguarding a unique 20th century architectural asset.
