Abstract

This paper examines issues arising from an inter-disciplinary work in progress involving ethnographers, architects, historians and conservators. The aim is to develop a digital model through which information relating to the history, ritual use, religious significance and cultural habits of a mixed community can be accessed for the purpose of more responsive conservation planning. The case study site is the walled city of Ajmer in Rajasthan, India, a populous pilgrimage centre that holds tangible and intangible cultural value for many diverse groups of residents and visitors but which remains largely unmapped in conventional terms.
