How to make the world look at your heritage sites?
Updated: Feb 12
India is a land of many cultural heritage sites. These places of importance have several folklores and stories of importance woven around it. They offer a slice into the legacy of a place and its traditions.
Some of the current challenges when visiting places of heritage are,
Senior citizens: Elderly people may find it difficult to climb stairs or visit these places of importance because usually, these places are several hundred years old and only have basic infrastructure.
Time & weather: Some of these places often have specific timings when they are open to the public and then there are always unforeseen weather conditions that prevent people from visiting.
These issues can be solved using Virtual tours to create a digital twin of these sites effectively.
Convenience at your fingertips: Cater to a wide range of audience enabling them to visit any religious places or places of heritage at the comfort of their own homes - whenever and wherever they are and for how many ever times they want. Because we know for some elders, this can be a godsend.
Immersive experience: If your audience has a simple Google cardboard or a VR headset, you can make them feel like they are actually there. What's even better is you can add videos and info to enrich the experience even better!
Capture an important moment in time: Let's say there is a particular occasion that is happening at this place which may not happen for a very long time. Using 360° camera to capture the event, will allow anybody to view this moment forever.
