The future of the Durban Cultural and Documentation Centre, which houses valuable pieces of Indian history, hangs in the balance.

The centre, home to artefacts, musical instruments, traditional clothing, important documents, books and photographs, some dating back to the 1800s, was opened in 1996.

It was once a hive of activity and regarded as a tourist attraction, but the condition of its contents — most of which were donated by Indian families around the country — has deteriorated over the years.
