SPS Museum goes online
JORA, SOGAMI LAUNCH WEBSITE
Srinagar, June 18: The Sri Pratap Singh Museum in now online. The Minister for Tourism and Culture, Nawang Rigzin Jora and his deputy Nasir Sogami Friday launched the website of the museum: www.spsmuseum.org.
The website is a collaborative restoration project of UNESCO and the J&K chapter of Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH).
Both Jora and Wani hailed the efforts of state Convener of INTACH, Saleem Beg for setting up the website.
Jora said once the new museum building is completed (the deadline has already been set as October, 2010), the old building will be restored and used for cultural activities.
“The museum is no attraction for children and youngsters. We will make the old building a hub of cultural activities so that it attracts people,” he said.
Earlier, Saleem Beg termed the museum as the “repository of the various layers of civilizations” and gave a detailed presentation about the museum. He put forward the recommendations for the restoration of the museum, which was set up in 1898 during Maharaja Pratap Singh’s regime to house exhibits and artifacts covering the region of Jammu, Kashmir, Baltistan and Gilgit.
The website, which has been designed by Aford Infocom, gives a thorough insight to the museum from its early history to the collection it houses.
