What does heritage mean to you?

Your personal slice of heritage could be your family home, or a 200-year-old tree you pass on your way to work. An ancient monument that has withstood the ravages of urbanization. It could be a lake in your town that craves a lease of life. Or a dying tradition, dance or custom that needs a few more takers.

We asked Yahoo! readers via Flickr to share photos of heritage icons that they want to preserve. Submitting a photo to this series is akin to adding your voice to a visual signature campaign -- you endorse the heritage icon and your passion to protect it.

Our editors were pleasantly overwhelmed by the range and breadth of themes and topics that represented heritage to our readers. Titled "My Discovery of India", our theme showcased aspects of heritage that readers want to preserve. Thanks to all of you for your time, enthusiasm and effort in making this showcase a runaway success. Do watch this space, as this gallery will be updated regularly.
