Promoting Sustainable Tourism Through Craft, Culture & Community

Since 2001, the Mohanam Village Heritage Centre has been working to promote and preserve Tamil village culture, empower local communities, and support sustainable rural tourism. With Mohanam Cultural Experiences, visitors can engage in educational and creative workshops, music and dance classes, and tours to Tamil villages. The profits from these experiences go toward funding the Centre's continued outreach projects in villages and cultural heritage preservation work. In addition, the local artisans and tour guides who lead these experience gain professional training and networking opportunities as they maintain and pass down knowledge of traditional handicrafts.
