Pail W Jones, the ambassador of US in Pakistan has announced a grant of fifty-five million rupees for the restoration and preservation of cultural sites in the country.
An extensive conservation effort is required by quite a few cultural heritage sites in Pakistan that include archaelogical ruins from Mohenjodaro. This site dates back to the beginning of thirs millennium BC and holds historical importance to a great extent. These ruins have a number of traces related to art, customs, religion etc. and all this does exude cultural influence on our lifestyle. However, these sites require a lot of maintenance and are also vulnerable to a number of threats.
Takht-i-Bahi is also a beautiful heritage site that needs preservation efforts an is the most important Buddhism sites in Pakistan. The site has been declared as an archaeological reserve by Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s provincial government.
So, whether the sites are historical or adventure or simple sightseeing, they do need a budget to be conserved and according to Paul W Jones, it is very important to safeguard these places.
