Conservation of Monuments

As per the existing policy the monuments are declared protected under “The Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Sites and Remains Act 1958 (24 of 1958)” as amended by “The Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Sites and Remains (Amendment and Validation) Act, 2010 (10 of 2010)”. The protected monuments are maintained and conserved by the Archaeological Survey of India as per archaeological norms and principles depending upon the availability of resources and needs of intervention. The policy of Archaeological Survey of India is to protect and preserve monuments and sites declared as of national importance without compromising their authenticity and integrity.

The Archaeological Survey of India maintains monuments and sites declared as of national importance on regular basis, depending upon their needs, within the available manpower and financial resources. In addition to this, tourist-related amenities (e.g. drinking water, toilet blocks, facilities for physically challenged, pathways, cultural notices, signage, vehicle parking, cloak rooms, etc.) are provided at some important centrally protected monuments/sites.
