The World Monuments Fund presents a new exhibition on the challenges of preserving the vastly diverse architectural heritage of India. The show focuses on Jaisalmer, the legendary Golden Fort of the Rajasthan desert, and also features other historic—and endangered—sites and cities. Included are architectural details, archival and contemporary photographs, textiles, tools, and crafts from Interpret Conservation at Jaisalmer—the Golden Fort of Rajasthan—and other historic sites.

Through architectural details, archival and contemporary photographs, textiles, tools, and crafts, the exhibition explores the historic architecture and conservation of Jaisalmer, Rajasthan; Basgo Gompa (Maitreya Temples), Leh; Champaner, Gujarat; Nako Temples, Nako; Osmania Women's College, Hyderabad; Paradesi Synagogue, Cochin; St. Anne's Church, Goa; and the Taj Mahal, Agra.

The World Monuments Fund is the foremost private international organization dedicated to the conservation of architecture and works of art whose loss or destruction would impoverish humankind. Founded in 1965, the World Monuments Fund is a nonprofit organization headquartered in New York City with international affiliates. Through a program of fieldwork, grant-making, educational programs, and advocacy, it brings public and private support together to preserve or rescue monuments worldwide.
