Vaibhav Chauhan, Festival Director (IHWF) and Secretary, Sahapedia, said: "The focus this year has been to encourage and increase different forms of engagement with interesting and important heritage spaces, while also ensuring that these spaces are made accessible to various audience groups.
"These efforts have also been specially directed towards those groups for whom engagement programmes in heritage spaces are commonly unavailable, such as children, the differently-abled, and those from economically disadvantaged backgrounds.
"We have also curated special walks and events with specific user groups in mind, such as students, travellers, local residents and professional groups such as photographers and conservationists."
