Banda's Chatrasaal Museum in Ruins


Bundelkhand Chatrasaal Museum- In Ruins

All  the histories of all periods of a place can be showcased in a single building which we call Museum. There was a long felt need of Museum in Banda. For the same reason, about a couple of decades ago, Bundelkhand Chatrasaal Museum (BCM) was established in Banda by Archaeological Survey of India (ASI). That was a small construction with few rooms. Due to some 'problems', the museum was shut and locked. Anti-social elements has broken its windows and taken out most of the antique and valuable items. Now, BCM is in ruins with some of the ancient rock sculptures lying outside. ASI should take immediate steps to protect sculptures and reconstruct
the museum.
