Heritage Sites in India - Key Issues

India has many heritage sites ranging from the town of Vrindavan to battle grounds of Kurukshetra and then there are sites like those of the Bhopal Gas Tragedy.

These sites are being maintained poorly and are missing out on a very large tourism and education opportunity.

We would like to seek your inputs on all such sites and their current state.

Our objective is to submit a whitepaper to Ministry of Urban Development, Ministry of Tourism so such sites get their due and are developed into "places to visit" on the global travel maps.

We look forward to your inputs!

Dear R P Guptaji

Greetings and thanks for the mail

Already INTAC and ASI of India have a great data base on heritage sites and
are doing lot of work.

Only think which i do not know is how much of integration and co-creation
and co -operation they exhibit between them.

If there is room for improvement we need to work on that kind of joint
endeavours so that resources and brain power are all fully utilized

Alread UN has a charter and division on preservation of Heritage sites .

WE can learn from E U countries also and adopt them.
All of you citizens of US are all aware of the system and procedure
followed .

Concurrently we need to educate our own local citizen to take care of the
monuments and not vandalize them starting from the school audience as the
base line and involvement of local citizen body. No political party
representation. If you allow them then they will join hands and remove all
moveable assets to Dollar denominated nations and make money.

Good luck

Maintenance of Heritage sites is a neglected subject so fare as Govt are concerned .Tourism can be a very good source of Income for Government as well as local people. In Bihar Hindu ancient temple ,killas Jain heritage sites, Sikhs heritage sites, Buddha heritege sites, reserve forests,Muslim heritage dargahs are very rich resource of income . If government must be developed road & security only and through internet and media it must e show in broad way. more  
Dear R P Gupta,

The idea is great.

The cheapest way to go ahead is to LIST all such Heritage sites, statewise.

Then, CLASSIFY them into their historical category. Put them in a
chronological order of value attached to them and the potential interest
that Visitors may look upon.

Then seek a finance budget for every year fom the Government.

Give your ideas for developing these sites , may be ten sites at a time.

This is the way to go ahead and further evolve and explore this area.

Montitor the interest of International visitors & the reporting of global
medias, which may not always be encouraging.

19. All the Forts built during the erstwhile Princely India shall be restored and declared as Heritage of India and promoted for Tourists. All the Palaces that are not maintained shall be restored to their glory and declared as Museums and shall be maintained as a Tourist attraction. All the Public buildings (Monuments) built during and before the Princely India shall be maintained as Heritage structures. more  
Maintenance of Heritage sites is a neglected subject so fare as Govt are concerned .Tourism can be a very good source of income to the Govt as well as local inhabitants if we are able to provide better amenities at such sites . more
