Lalbagh in the list of sites to be conserved

Indore: With renovation work having started at two structures in Orchha, hopes are high that Indore’s Lalbagh palace too will be conserved with the aid from World Monument Fund (WMF).
Principal Secretary, finance, Vinod Chandra Semwal and commissioner, archaeology, Pankaj Raag recently held a meeting with representatives of the WMF where it was decided to take up conservation of monuments at Orchha in Tikamgarh and a group of temples at Ashapuri in Raisen district on priority.
In the second phase, other sites including Lalbagh palace could be taken up for conservation, they felt. Bonnie Burnham, president of WMF, and officials of state government had announced on April 24 this year a partnership to conserve historic sites in the erstwhile princely states.
The WMF has pledged $5 million for assessment, documentation and development of conservation management plans as well as monitoring implementation of selected projects. The state government has also earmarked some fund for the projects from its share in the 13th Finance Commission.
