Save Bhopal Heritage sign now

The importance of India is in its Incredible Heritage.

The Flagstones of History are bastions of legacy of Golden Days.
In Bhopal the legacy is under threat as the Minster of Urban Development Babulal Gaur is making way for parking lots by demolishing the oldest post office, The Gateway of the old City the only surviving Gate of the Old City Jumerati and the Royal Rest House Sheesh Mahal.

Lets Not be silent viewers and join hands to save the buildings from the acute danger.
Believe in past as present stands on it and so does Future.

The Bhopal Heritage Foundation called for a reactionary protest against the order of the urban development minister Babulal Gaur who on April 1 announced that three old buildings of the city (Sheesh Mahal, Old post Office and Jumerati Gate) will be demolished to make way for parking area in the market.

The President Shehla Masood, Secretary Sikander Malik, Archaeologist Pooja Saxena with several historians Dr Amita singh, Dr. Mamta Chandsoria were prominent and eminent citizens were present.

We request Culture and heritage Lovers to sign the petition to save the Historical monument in Bhopal. These orders they are not coming for building but for a culture.

Our politicians have been elected agents of real estate Mafia. In the name of Urbanization its is just creating a divide.The member demanded the calling of the orders, realizing the historicity of these buildings to save them is much easy then destroying them with better options.

The rest of World tries its level best to save, preserve and renovate historical sites, heritage, buildings etc.. But political expediency and Money only seems to be the criteria for these so called politicians.When the world is talking about Restoration n Conservation of historical buildings.....some Destructive Minds ,think in the reverse direction.

Show your Solidarity Friends.

Jumerati gate was one among the several gates that were erected by Sardar Dost Muhammad khan the founder of Bhopal. This gate is a living legend of citys history built around 1720. It defended the Bhopal city during the siege of Bhopal. The gate is the only part of the Sher-i-khas which is curbed by the rising encroachments and is facing the brunt of the insane authorities.

The old post office was a part of the unique postal system of Bhopal that was modernized by the Begum of Bhopal Nawab Sikander Begum. Later the postal services were consolidated in times of Nawab Shahjehan Begum and consolidated postal services were introduced in the former Bhopal state. This building is now in a dilipidated state due to negligence.

The Sheesh Mahal is part of the khirniwala maidan complex. It was constructed in times of Nawab Sikander Begum of Bhopal to accommodate the state guests who visited Bhopal on royal visits. It is the building where Iqbal the poet wrote his masterpieces dedicated to the nation. This royal guest house was the residence of celebrated poet Fazal Tabhish of Bhopal. The building houses the old art school of Bhopal of Zari Zardosi established by Nawab Sultan Jahan Begum of Bhopal. The producer Ismail Merchant used the city palace complex for the incustody movie. The unique blend of Indo-French architecture is a example of architectural heritage.

Friend please sigh the petition and share it with your friends.
