UNESCO will inspect Ramappa Temple for World Heritage site tag. Ramappa Temple is one of the ancient Temple in Warangal district of Telangana.
With the Golconda Fort and Qutub Shahi Tombs having been snubbed by the Central government for the World Heritage Site tag, the State government has now shifted its attention to the Ramappa Temple for attaining the much-coveted title by 2020.
A meeting on the same was held on Monday between the State Department of Youth Advancement, Tourism and Culture and the Archaeological Survey of India — the custodian of the monument. As per sources, during the meeting, officials laid a framework for the completion of pending works before the UNESCO officials visit the site for inspection in September.
With the ASI facing a fund crunch, the works would have to be taken up by the State government. It may be recalled that CM Chandrasekhar Rao had pushed for Ramappa’s nomination a few months ago.
