| Monday | 17th July, 2017
This as Archaeological Survey of India (ASI), Gujarat circle, is set to install braille signboards at around 50 monuments in the state for explaining their historical and cultural significance to the visually-impaired visitors.
“It is a good initiative, but along with Braille signboards, miniatures of monuments should also be placed somewhere so that the blind can touch and feel them.
To encourage them and disseminate the accurate historical information to them, we have decided to put up Braille signboards at major monuments in Gujarat,” said Anil Tiwari, Superintending Archaeologist, ASI, Vadodara Circle.
“Many visually-impaired tourists visit these monuments.
Sun Temple of Modhera, Rani ki Vav in Patan, Diu fort, Dwarka temple and Jama Masjid in Champaner are among 50-odd protected monuments across Gujarat, which will soon be visually-impaired-friendly.
