A Landscape Approach to the Rejuvenation of the Cultural Landscape of Barkur through Historical Analysis

Meghana K Raj, Rajshekar Rao


Abstract: Barkur, which is an ancient port town in Karnataka situated on the banks of the river Sita, has a unique culture that is developed because of its natural setting and that is reflected in the way of life, Architecture, and festivals. It has a rich historical background and this cultural landscape which has evolved over centuries is under threat due to insensitive development and apathy towards their heritage. This paper involves a landscape approach through historical analysis of the primary data and survey method using secondary data to map the topography of this town. Design strategies are proposed for a sustainable rejuvenation of the heritage and cultural landscape to achieve ecological stability, conservation of the monuments and to promote eco-tourism and showcase the glory and growth of this town. It is found that proper watershed management would help to optimize the use of natural resources, improve agriculture productivity and revive the lost interlinks between the streams and tanks. Policies are proposed to protect and conserve rich farmlands and provide for a sustainable development of the historic sites and monuments. The proposals include a sustainable development to promote eco-tourism and provide economic opportunities to the local community.
