City Spaces

City spaces play a crucial role in shaping our city’s experience. Extending beyond homes and offices, they lend a character and vibe to the city. These spaces provide recreation, shopping and activity. Some spaces such as parks also foster a sense of community and belonging. They encourage public interaction, exchange, and contribute to livelihoods, creating a positive atmosphere. While Gurgaon has state-of-the art indoor spaces such as malls, it certainly needs more uniformly accessible, people-centric open spaces. Investing in such areas can enhance the city’s liveability, making it more welcoming and inclusive. Additionally, Gurgaon has untapped potential for developing heritage sites that potentially can add to its depth and appeal.

Heritage Sites

Gurgaon heritage has many stories, some forgotten, some preserved, and many at risk. Notable landmarks include the Aliwardi Sarai Mosque (protected by ASI) from the 18th century, and others like Sheetla Mata Mandir, Kaman Sarai, John Hall, Church of Epiphany, Tomb of Jean Etienne at Jharsa, and the Bawli at Badshahpur that lack protection. Many historic structures in urban villages like Gurgaon Masani, Jharsa, and Badshahpur, as well as in areas like Civil Lines, Roshanpura, Jacob Pura, and Sadar Bazaar, are in need of conservation. These places could benefit from various interventions such as listing and safeguarding, restoration, interpretation, and adaptive reuse. Additionally, awareness programs and heritage walks could be organized to offer citizens a meaningful city experience and health benefits. For example, heritage walks could be developed around the Sadar Bazaar pedestrianisation project and its surroundings, as well as in Badshahpur/Jharsa/Gurgaon Masani. Organizations like INTACH could play a crucial role as technical partners in these initiatives.
