Abstract (in English)

The history of the conservation of monuments in India goes back to early centuries of Christian era. Inscriptional records and the literary reference available have provided that the monuments were cared and looked after time to time by the Kings, their subordinates, monks and merchants. The systematic conservation and the study of the antiquarian remains started in the 18th century and regular legislations about the monuments and sites were framed in the beginning of the 20th century. In the beginning there was no concept of the management of the movements and the sites need to be maintained and preserved on a concept based management. The Archaeological Survey of India is the nodal agency for the upkeep of the monuments and the maintenance. The various legislations have strengthen the working of the Government organizations and now the monuments are being looked after and controlled on the concept of the public involvement.
