Welcome To

Hinduja Heritage

This rare collection of artefacts and coins going back three millennia records the history of a highly developed ancient civilisation, when the rule of law and economic governance prevailed in the kingdoms and empires that stretched across India. What we have here is a 'Collection of Collections', one that we are convinced has and will continue to have unparalleled significance in the world.

The objective of developing and sharing the Hinduja Heritage Collection is to encourage the advancement of knowledge and education about India's glorious history and culture, and to become a repository of other such collections that we pledge to safeguard and exhibit in the coming years.
