Center for Heritage Conservation (CHC), CEPT Research and Development Foundation (CRDF) in collaboration with The Hive (Ahmedabad), conducted a workshop on ‘Digital Twinning: Case Study of Tankshal Mosque’  as a part of the Young Heritage Explorers' Program (YHEP) on 22 January 2023 at CEPT Conservation Site School in Tankshal, Ahmedabad.

The workshop introduced young students to three activities 'Is this an XRay or Picture', 'Playing with Clouds and Mirrors', and 'Why we Draw/Visualise’. Participants were exposed to the technology of 3D Laser Scanning (digital twinning) through the case of a rare old timber mosque in the historic city of Ahmedabad.

YHEP, is an initiative by CHC that aims to introduce and educate young people about the significance of heritage sites and the role of history and heritage conservation in our contemporary lives. Under the initiative, the centre identifies the parts of the city or town that have historical significance but  are less well known or neglected. The workshops are conducted on such sites in order to create awareness among children about the aspects related to heritage of their city or town.
