The Deccan region of south-central India, where diamonds were first mined and exported to Europe, is little known yet – it is India’s best kept secret. Comprising the modern Indian states of Maharashtra, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Goa, the Deccan has had a prestigious history and culture which has produced some of the finest architecture of the subcontinent, an inventive regional cuisine and a creative literature.

The formation of the Deccan Heritage Foundation sets out to study and help preserve the cultural heritage of this region to make them more accessible to a wider public and more importantly, to create a greater awareness within the local communities so they learn how the monuments can be socially and economically beneficial. The launch of this new Foundation will take place on October 2nd at Bonhams, London to coincide with their forthcoming October 4th sale of Islamic and Indian Art.
