Hyderabad: The Deccan Heritage Academy thanks Telangana government for immediate response on the request for not shifting the ASI Science Branch in Hyderabad to Mumbai.
Chairman of Deccan Heritage Academy, Vedakumar Manikonda believes that retaining the Science Branch of ASI in Hyderabad is necessary to earn UNESCO status for Hyderabad city.
In a press release he said, “The scientific and technological studies by the Science Branch of ASI, Hyderabad on Ramappa Temple, proved that the construction of the temple is made of bricks that can float on water. Not only Ramappa Temple, there are 139 heritage precincts and monuments in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh under the Science Branch of ASI, Hyderabad.”
The science branch started in 1953 in Hyderabad which works towards preservation of monuments by manifold research and studies on protected monuments. They also take appropriate steps for the preservation of these structures.
He added, “Now, the team will be able to conduct further scientific research and studies on the other heritage structures. This will help earn Hyderabad the status of UNESCO World Heritage City. I feel that the central government should upgrade the ASI Science Branch in Hyderabad, increase the staff and also allocate an appropriate budget for their work.”
