Government is very keen to restore cultural heritage in Jammu and Kashmir and to promote it for rural tourism to flourish. In this direction Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha recently chaired a meeting to review the action plan for effective implementation of the scheme for ‘Revival, Restoration, Preservation and Maintenance of Ancient Cultural Heritage’ in Jammu and Kashmir.

He stressed that conservation efforts must retain the aesthetic, historic and social values of our great civilizational and cultural legacy.

The scheme was envisaged in order to identify the sacred places and heritage sites requiring intervention, carrying out their revival, restoration or renovation work, ensuring protection and longevity of these places, besides promoting restoration wherever damage has occurred to these places.

He directed the Culture Department to adopt value-based conservation with the help of experts. The department should also ensure transparency and effective onsite monitoring of the projects.

He asked his administration to identify shrines, places having historical, cultural, religious significance and work that should follow value-based methodologies and an integrated approach to conservation. Take up the projects that reflect the representations of every community and every sect.
