The Archaeological Survey of India has enlisted three more historic monuments in Rajasthan for inclusion in the category of protected buildings. The ASI’s State office here has sent a proposal in the connection to the Centre.
According to an official release here on Wednesday, the proposal includes a historic, rare nine-storey ‘baori’ (step-well) of the 17th or 18th Century situated in Neemrana town of Alwar district. Its structural design is stated to be a matchless example of architecture.
The two other monuments are a historic fort on the hills in Jamwa Ramgarh tehsil of Jaipur district and the Todaraisingh Palace in Tonk district.
The release said the ASI was at present looking after 160 buildings, including forts and places of archaeological significance, across the State as protected monuments. The inclusion of more monuments in the category will facilitate their conservation and help attract tourists to them.
