Sanchi: First heritage site in India to be accessible to people with visual impairment

D.N.I.S. News Network, India: The famous Buddhist site Sanchi has opened itself to people with visual impairment this November onwards. It now has the distinction of being the first world heritage monument in the country that is friendly to persons with visual impairment.

Archaeological Survey of India (A.S.I.) has installed special tactile walkways, signages in Braille, beepers and a Braille map to enable people with visual impairment to feel the grandeur of the monument. As a rule they do not allow visitors and tourists to touch the monument, but they have relaxed this rule for persons with visual impairment to enhance their experience of the famed monument.
