More than 3,500 inscriptions across India discovered and deciphered: G Kishan Reddy

Union Tourism Minister G Kishan Reddy chaired the 37th Meeting of the Central Advisory Board of Archaeology (CABA) held in New Delhi on Tuesday.



He informed that the Centre in Budget 2020 and 2021 declared five sites of cultural importance as iconic sites, and these are being developed as per international norms. The sites are Rakhigarhi (Haryana), Hastinapur (UP), Dholavira (Gujarat), Sibsagar (Assam) and Aadichanallur (Tamil Nadu).



He highlighted that India recently got elected as a member of UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee for a four-year term from 2021 to 2025 and that nine new sites (including Nalanda Mahavihara Bihar, historic cities of Ahmedabad and Jaipur, Kakatiya Rudrappa Temple of Telangana, and Dholavira in Gujarat) got tagged as World Heritage Sites. This takes India’s count to 40 in the UN list.



Reddy further stated that 241 antiquities are being brought back to India, of which 228 are from countries like US, Australia, UK, Singapore, and France, and excavations have been done at sites like Sinauli, Vadnagar, Kodumanal and Gottiporulu.



Epigraphy wing has also done a lot of work, with more than 3,500 inscriptions across the country discovered and deciphered, he said.
