Testimonial

...This is such an important & timely endeavour! ... I have looked for such a place in Bangladesh for a longtime & I feel I have finally found it. I am so glad that local leaflets, Posters, greeting cards, etc. have a house where they can make future academics, researchers, historians smile for a while ...

...Heritage has been a unique endeavour from the start, but it has now blossomed into a depository that is attracting more and more donations from around the country ... For a researcher, it is a joy to be here ...
