Hampi: UNESCO's move a recognition to Hamoi's hard work
Bellary, Karnataka, July 13 (UNI) The removal of the name of world heritage site Hampi from the list of endangered monuments is a recognition for the Hamoi Development Authority which took up several works to develop it as the historic spot as per the guidelines of UNESCO, Deputy Commissioner Arvind Srivastav said today.
Talking to reporters here, he said the move of the United Nations' cultural body would draw the attention of international financial institutions to Hampi facilitating further development of the site.
He said the UNESCO team, which had visited the heritage site twice during his tenure, was apprised of the measures taken by both the Centre and state in developing Hampi as per the parameters set by it. The team was satisfied with the works and had recommended deletion of the name of the historic site from the endangered list, he added.
Mr Srivastav said a revised project plan would be submitted to the government by September to develop the heritage site further to enable tourists to know the history of the natural monuments here.
Some more changes would be made to give utmost satisfaction to tourists, he added.
