The Ziegenbalg House ...

... invites you to explore the diversity of agents, the non-linear development and the cultural crossroads of Indian and European societies, systematically initiated by the Danish-Halle Tranquebar Mission since 1706.

These cultural encounters created a joint heritage proven by various architectonical, written or other material sources, mainly stored in European archives.

The Ziegenbalg House opens a new space for multi-media collection and public communication of these sources to Indian audiences. It is a cooperative project of heritage restitution in contemporary formats.
