ASI Heritage Day show a hit at Purana Qila


On World Heritage Day, Purana Qila gave stiff competition to the city’s three world heritage sites in terms of footfall. At least 12,000 visitors thronged the Qila on Friday to witness the ongoing excavation project by Archaeological Survey of India and the artifacts discovered that have been put on public display for the first time. The response was so overwhelming that ASI has decided to keep the onsite exhibition open on Saturday as well though access to the excavation site will be restricted.

Delhi circle chief Vasant K Swarnkar said, “The antiquities on display and onsite exhibition will also be open on Saturday. But the excavation site will be cordoned off after a point, so visitors can see the objects only from a distance.”
