Sahapedia is an open online resource on art, culture, and heritage of India. “Saha”, Sanskrit for “together with”, is an invitation to explore together the richness of Indian cultural landscapes. We know that the knowledge of each subject is complex and has many dimensions.
So, the platform gives you many options for finding your preferred way around each subject. At Sahapedia, you can read articles, watch videos, listen to interviews and browse image galleries. During our virtual walks, you will be able to visit historical sites and natural areas.
