ICOMOS

ICOMOS, acronym of International Council on Monuments and Sites, is an international non-governmental organisation of heritage professionals engaged in the conservation of places of cultural value and dedicated to the conservation of the world’s historic monuments and sites. ICOMOS was founded in 1965 following the adoption of the International Charter for the Conservation and Restoration of Monuments and Sites – generally referred to as The Venice Charter (1964).

The overall aim of the webinar series is to inform water professionals and heritage experts about the Water and Heritage initiative and its activities that aim at recognition by water managers that water related heritage can contribute significantly toward water challenges. The specific objective of the webinars is to encourage national working groups to be initiated with the longer-term objective to mobilize support to have Water and Heritage discussed at the UN International Water conference to be held in New York in 2023, see the Chair’s Statement of the symposium ‘Water and Culture’ held on February 3 in Tokyo.

Het Vijayanagara-rijk

Het Vijayanagara-rijk was een koninkrijk in het zuiden van India. Het rijk werd in 1336 gesticht door Harihara I en zijn broer Bukka Raya I en bleef tot 1646 bestaan, hoewel de macht van het rijk wel afnam na een grote nederlaag tegen de verzamelde legers van meerdere sultans in 1565.

Het rijk is vernoemd naar de hoofdstad, Vijayanaga waarvan de ruïnes vandaag de dag nog altijd rondom Hampi liggen. Het Vijayanagararijk was op zijn hoogtepunt een van de machtigste koninkrijken uit de geschiedenis van India. Veel monumenten uit de tijd van het rijk zijn nog overal in Zuid-India te vinden.
