GUIDED TOURS

The Heritage Village is LARGE. Altogether, it contains more than two dozen structures plus several collections displayed in smaller museums and galleries on-site. In our opinion, it just isn’t possible for our visitors to enjoy all this in one major tour.

Let’s face it - It’s tiring to rush about in the sun! And you need time to enjoy what you see because there’s so much that fits into each tour anyway.

Keeping the enjoyment of our visitors in mind (and their sheer diversity), we now offer several new guided tours for you to better appreciate the structures at the Heritage Village, their stories and the landscape they are located in. Some (but not all) will take you indoors as well, to look at the artefacts and our fabulous collections.

You will see different parts of the Heritage Village in each guided tour so you can form a collage of impressions of its entirety. You will virtually build the Heritage Village in your mind, step by step, tour by tour. Each guided tour will help you gain a different perspective of the Village. All of them entice you to imagine a time gone by.

Depending on what time of the year, week and day you come to visit, you can enjoy one or more of our ongoing guided tours. Like world class museums everywhere, we also encourage you to come again. And again. There will always be something new to pique your curiosity at the Heritage Village!

THE SOUTHERN STROLL TOUR

In the first of our newly curated walks, you wander through three of the most beautiful royal structures in the Heritage Village to get a glimpse of different aspects of our regal past. As if that wasn’t enough, you will also see a quintessential Mangalore Christian House and top it with a museum of Bastar art. You even go through the old Bazaar Street where you see what window shopping is all about!

HERITAGE BY NIGHT

On special requests from groups, several structures of the Heritage Village are lit up for more than an hour and glow elegantly in the night. Family groups, conference groups or just friends may request the lighting for special occasions, conferences/seminars, functions or festivals, when they have come together to discuss, debate or celebrate! For our visitors, Heritage By Night has proved to be a memorable and relaxing end to a day’s hard work at a conference, other events or festivities.
