Showcasing the built, natural and cultural history & heritage of Kanpur and its surrounding areas
Kanpur Heritage Information System
Kanpur Heritage and History is a technology-enabled documentation project of the urban social technology firm, Mapunity, focused on the local history of the city. It combines information on different aspects of the heritage of cities - the built form, a chronology, cultural distinction, and more - to make it easier to know and celebrate the heritage of the city and the region around it.
Mapunity's HH platform is also available for the following cities.
Every place in the world has its story, of how it came into existence and how it became the way it is today. Knowing this local history can help us appreciate the richness and diversity of the past much better. This platform is part of Mapunity's Local History Promotion Project, an effort to present local history to ourselves, so that we may know and retell it more, and remember it better.
