Abstract (in English)

The case of Hauz Khas Enclave precinct in New Delhi, that includes Siri fort and Kalu Sarai area, provides a perfect context for a discussion on co-existence and integration of urban built heritage and modern urbanisation. The study focuses on the urban development around these frozen-in-time monuments that are isolated from the city and also around the living urban villages that are equally a part of this built heritage. This paper will put forward the various layers of history in the precinct and the chronological growth around them. The gradual transformation that can take place if and when diverse communities get involved in the integration process is also analysed in detail. Hence, association of people with the urban heritage is an important aspect of this research paper and it will discuss clues to the level of integration possible between heritage and urbanisation.
