Tourism and Conservation of Heritage Monuments: The Stakeholders’ Manifesto highlights and demonstrates the on-going issues and solutions for conserving and preserving the rich heritage monuments and historical buildings. It also serves as a resource book on the subject of tourism and conservation.

The qualitative and quantitative conclusions drawn will help the readers to get a clear view of tourism and conservation at the atomistic level. It introduces the landmark study of tourism and conservation and recent contributions to illustrate the integrated aspects through charting on its own course with the existing realm of knowledge. It provides elaborate information and explores through debates and deliberations, on the themes of conservation of heritage sites, restoration of heritage buildings, and digital documentation of monuments, traditional methods of preservation of temples, volunteer conservation, and monument adaptation.
