Need to preserve heritage sites
ActIT Jammu, ASP.net Projects, Java, Vb.net, C# Training Jammu
Dear Editor,

Apropos a news item in today’s KT regarding a statement from the State ASI unit about the need to preserve the heritage sites. It goes without saying that the heritage sites, belonging to any era are worth preserving. A special mention can be made of the Srinagar Museum, where numerous works of importance in both Sanskrit and Prakrit, besides the preservation of ancient findings at Burzahama and elsewhere, pointing towards a rich pre-historical past connecting the Valley with an era of the original settlers, has to be taken on a priority basis,.

Another example which is worth mentioning is the Guphkral cave at Beerwah, Budgam which is nowadays in a bad shape owing to the gross negligence of the Department. The villagers there have been using the place as a dumping ground and cattle storage site, ruining the ancient vibes of the place. The place is connected with Kashmir’s great scholar and Shiva incarnate, Abhinavguptacharya, the proponent of Shivasutra. The ASI instead of focusing on any particular era from the Valley’s remote past must as an inclusive policy, focus on those sites which demand preservation, so that the generation next and present are face to face with their glorious heritage.
