INTACH launches Zilla Khazana where the public can share pictures of lesser known monuments in Telangana
A first-of-its-kind programme ‘Zilla Khazana’ meaning unveiling the natural, built and living heritage of Telangana was launched at the State Museum on Wednesday. Under the programme, students, general public and anyone interested in artefacts, monuments, forts and natural history can take pictures and share it with Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH). INTACH in turn will document the data and prepare an inventory.
BP Acharya, Principal Secretary (FAC), Tourism and Culture, said that through Zilla Khazana hundreds of lesser known and undiscovered monuments in Telangana will come to limelight. He called upon volunteers to document them. Gopalakrishna, convenor, INTACH Telangana, said that heritage clubs should start in all schools and colleges and advised the volunteers to develop a good network in their respective areas of work.
“An inventory will be made and unknown monuments could come into the fold,” said P Anuradha Reddy, co-convenor, INTACH, Telangana. Sunita, director, Department of Archaeology and Museums, Telangana, said, “Hardly anyone visits the museums. It is only schools students who are compelled to visit museums. This programme should encourage a lot of youth to come forward and enthuse a spirit of enquiry.”
