The Conservancy Association Centre for Heritage (CACHe) is a non-profit conservation group. We aim at promoting the conservation of history, cultures and heritages in Hong Kong. 


The Antiquities and Monuments Ordinance was enforced in 1976 to ensure that the best examples of Hong Kong's monuments are under appropriate protection. In the same year, the Antiquities Advisory Board (the Board) and the Antiquities and Monuments Office (the Office) were established. 


This website provides you with online information about the heritage conservation work. Additionally, it serves as a platform and digital store for all heritage-related information.
