Culkey Foundation envisions to help an individual connect to their roots, traditions and culture through building a platform and participation in the restoration of  temples to  their ancient glory.

For Generation Z without the knowledge of Indian texts our tradition is riddled with jargon; reading and interpreting them is a tedious task often the job of an astrologer or our grandmother.

People are finding it difficult to make their children understand / follow the family / sect-specific cultural values & rituals

Culkey Foundation aims to build a Culture Digital Assistant & Platform  for Generation Z & beyond in a Common User


Assist in Preservation of heritage temples now in poor condition
Impact local economy through increased foot falls
Publish historical, religious, and architectural data locally and online
Temple Restoration


Temples that are our precious heritage have also been the lifeline of the rural lives and economy over ages. Several of them, many centuries old, are the last vestiges our ancient culture representing significant chapters in our history. So are the cultural assets in the communities around them in the form of art forms such as Music, Dance, Folklore, Food and Festivities. Unfortunately, these have been registering a sharp decline over time due to neglect. ​
