    This year Vadodara will celebrate it’s  506th ‘birthday’ and applaud its heritage during National Heritage Week with a series of exciting activities, informative exhibitions, heritage tours and walks, bazaars, illustrated talks, and so on.

    This Heritage Week is completely self-sponsored and self-financed.

    Today, Vadodara (renamed thus in the 1970s) is a cosmopolitan, tier-two city, also selected to be a ‘Smart City’ from a bunch of fast-growing cities by the Indian Government.

    Over the last so many centuries, the city has seen many ups and downs, but unlike any other city anywhere in the world, it has a strange ability to hold on to its residents and continuously gather those wandering away again and again into its fold! Once a Barodian, always a Barodian!

    The people of Vadodara will celebrate the 2nd National Heritage Week from November 19 to 25, this year and every year henceforth. The programmes lined up are Exhibitions: A series of Exhibitions are being organized all over the city to showcase the various kinds of heritage that Vadodara has supported, promoted and sustained over the years like Armoury Gallery at Manekrao Akhada, Exhibition of Omessa Fine Art Jewelry, Exhibition on well-known Baroda Wrestler, Shri Vasantrao Kaptan, All About Teeth, Exhibition at Dr. Chandarana Dental Museum, Photographing the City, The Match Box Heritage, Calligraphy and its Tools Exhibition, Baroda State Medals and Envelopes Exhibition.
