Tankshal ni Masjid: Site Introduction



Conservation Site School is conceptually based on a premise that many heritage sites that are highly valuable for their historic importance are neglected due to lack of active use or lack of funds and resources. The imperative of conserving such sites and structures lies collectively among the citizens. These sites are a great repository of historic knowledge and present an opportunity for conservation training and knowledge sharing.


The first site to be adopted for the Conservation Site School is at Tankshal ni Pol, City Survey no. 603, Kalupur Ward 1 that is under the custodianship of Ahmedabad Sunni Muslim WAQF Committee. This structure is listed as a Grade IIA heritage site and is one of the rare timber mosques in urgent need of conservation efforts in the historic city. CRDF and ASMWC have entered into an agreement that is financially non-binding and based on a mutual understanding where CHC will carry out educational activity and initiate conservation processes. Once conserved, the site will be used for an activity that will be arrived at through community consultation process and will be handed back to ASMWC who will manage it from there on.
