The zonal cultural centres were conceived and set up as cultural distribution networks between 1985 to 1987 in order to promote, develop and link the various arts with people living in urban, rural and tribal areas of India. These centres are intended to become cultural organizations not limited to performances in closed auditoria for limited audiences, but to outgrow into centres with people of India as audience and thousands of folk artists, craftsmen at the grass-roots level as performers. The headquarters of the WZCC is located in the historical Bagore-Ki-Haveli which is a huge mansion comprising of 138 rooms built in the 18th Century by the Prime Minister of the royal Mewar dynasty. The haveli has a typical architectural style with exquisite glass inlay work and paintings. After 5 years of strenuous restoration work, a museum has been set up in Bagore-Ki-Haveli to depict the royal lifestyle, architecture and cultural ethos carefully conserved to its pristine glory.
