This work was presented at a conference on ‘The Resilience of Vernacular Heritage in Asian Cities’ organised by the Asian Urbanism Cluster at the ARI, Singapore. The conference focused on the interplay between cultural practices and the production of urban space and place-making. Our research on peepul tree shrines (ashwath kattes) was part of the panel on ‘Faith and Vernacular heritage’ with co-panelists Vineeta Sinha from NUS; Jeffrey Hou & Chiao-Yen Yang from University of Washington, U.S. and Shubhi Sonal from MS Ramaiah Institute of Technology, Bangalore.
