Abstract: The old Bhubaneswar precinct is a prime religious and heritage site in India, which attracts millions of pilgrims and other travellers every year. This paper measures pedestrians’ mobility experiences and the influence of different factors in this heritage precinct. Five hundred respondents were interviewed to rate various factors of the built heritage environment using a five-point Likert scale. The data were examined through confirmatory factor analysis, and K means cluster analysis, which established that only one-third of the total pedestrians have positive mobility experiences, and pedestrians are least satisfied with comfort followed by safety factors at this site. © 2020, © 2020 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group.
