Svayam closely worked with the Archeological Survey of India (ASI) from the year 2006 to make world heritage sites in India accessible. QutubMinar, Red Fort in Delhi, and Taj Mahal and FatehpurSikri Group of Monuments in Agra received national awards for being best maintained and accessible monuments for tourists with reduced mobility. The experiences of these World Heritage sites are being replicated by ASI at other historical sites in India.
