This is by far, the best thing to have come out of the Khasi Hills Autonomous District Council (KHADC). The initiative aims at displaying all the different Himas of the Khasis in one single location. The space is plentiful and is located justificably opposite of the Mawphlang Sacred Groves, the symbol of Khasi culture that has withstood thousands of years. There are 10 huts displaying the different habitations of each of the 10 khasi himas, a small museum showing photos of places, implements, attire, etc and an ampitheatre to seat quite a few people. Now all those who do not understand the importance of the groves and feel that there is not much to see at the Mawphlang Sacred Groves because they do not want to shell out 150 rupees an hour to the local guide to take them for a walk inside the groves and explain khasi culture, can atleast visit the Khasi Heritage Village located opposite the groves.
