Boards detailing history and significance of historical sites will be put across monuments in the capital by early next year, as part of the project to allot signages to the heritage structures.
Cultural notice boards, as they are called, will be put across 46 monuments on the heritage route in the next three months to inform visitors ahead of the Commonwealth Games about their historical and architectural values.
Currently being developed under the supervision of the Archaeological Survey of India, the cultural notice boards are part of a project to display signages on historical sites, classifying them according to the era of their establishment.
“Cultural notice boards are important as an informative tool for visitors; they will contain historical details of the concerned monuments. For instance, put up at the Qutub Minar, they will detail facts like who started it and who built the consecutive storeys,” K K Mohammad, Superintendent Archaeologist, ASI, said.
The signages project, being undertaken by three independent organisations under the supervision of the ASI is expected to be complete in three months time, he said.
“The work has been allotted to three bodies, and they have been asked to present the designs to us, to enable us to ensure uniformity,” he said.
