Good job, ASI

Shore temple, Mahabalipuram
Shore temple, Mahabalipuram

Many heritage structures in India are neglected and even vandalized. In many cases, the Archaeological survey of India was not effective or inefficient. However, in the case of Mahabalipuram, ASI seems to have done a good job.

The landscaping of the shore temple area looked a bit odd to the layman’s eye. However, a keen eye can note that it is imaginatively done. The straight approach first and then the winding lane to the side of the temple offer different perspectives of the shore temple.

The general upkeep of the area is also fairly good considering  our attitude towards cleanliness and civic discipline.
