The Executive Committee of the National Mission for Clean Ganga (NMCG) has approved a proposal to document the cultural heritage of River Ganga from Gaumukh to Gangasagar through INTACH.

Documentation of Cultural Heritage along River Ganga:

  • The proposal seeks to develop an appreciation of the river as a cultural stream embedded in the soul of India, by documenting its associated cultural narrative, including features like an annual calendar of events and rituals.

  • This would cover archaeological heritage, intangible cultural heritage and environmental heritage.
