A portion of one of India’s most coveted monuments, The Charminar, fell off after heavy rainfall in Hyderabad.
Charminar is almost 400 years old now and anyone visiting Hyderabad makes it a point to visit the Charminar. Despite its importance as a National monument, the Archaeological Survey of India seems to be sleeping over its well being and restoration options. Heavy rainfall in Hyderabad over the past few days saw a portion of one of the four minarets of Charminar fall off.
Archaeological Survey of India is the one responsible for maintenance of the monumnet, but like several other monuments across India, ASI has forgot to perform its duty even here. They now say that the restoration work will begin after monsoon season is over.
