To celebrate World Heritage Week, students of the Department of Tourism and Travel Management of Martin Luther Christian University (MLCU) visited Nartiang and Larnai villages in West Jaiñtia Hills to acquire knowledge through empirical evidence yesterday.
Students were introduced to the rich heritage of the villages where culture and monuments form an integral part of the community there.
In Larnai, the students got hands-on experience on the art of pottery demonstrated by one of the artisans, Roilin Pyrtuh.
The art of pottery in this village originated hundreds of years ago and passed down to generations by the forefathers.
The visit to the Nartiang Monoliths which is believed to hold the tallest monolith in the world has enlighten students about the historical facts of these sites and structures to the rich culture and has also prepared them with responsibilities and participation in preserving and conserving these heritage sites and traditional art.
