Save the Ramgharia Bunga

Save the Ramgharia Bunga from destruction PDF Print E-mail Monday, 11 December 2006 Reports are coming in from India that the historic Ramgharia Bunga in Hazur Sahib, Nanded is slated to be pulled down. This historical site linked to the Ramgharia Misl is one of the last of the great buildings related to Ranjit Singh in the region. It pre-dates the takht and was constructed with funds from the Ramgharia Sardars at Ranjit Singh's court to act as a place of safety and rest for visiting pilgrims. This historical site, with Ranjit Singh's own Baradari, is now in grave threat of being torn down, despite the wishes of the local community, sevadars and the Sikh clergy. These priceless Sikh buildings which have witnessed 150 years of history and are some of India's last surviving examples of Sikh architecture from the period of Sikh rule from Lahore are to be sacrificed to make way for modern buildings by a Sikh committee charged with making arrangements for the 2008 commemorations in Nanded. Please help us save these priceless buildings from destruction by adding your comments to this story which we will press upon Dr D. S. Pasricha chairman of the Prashasak ("logistics/arrangements") Committee for the 2008 event. Source: http://www.punjabheritage.org/editorials--reviews/save-the-ramgharia-bunga-from-destruction.html
