Apart from earning foreign exchange, tourism can also educate Indians as well as outside travelers about the richness and diversity of its cultural heritage and thereby creating a sensibility of tolerance and accommodation. Advanced approach in imaging technology, ranging from holography to virtual/augmented reality at or near sites that are difficult to reach or too delicate to be exposed to the inquisitive eyes and phone cameras of visitors.
The magnificent rock-cut temples of Ajanta and Ellora, world UNESCO heritage sites based in Aurangabad district, Maharashtra, are some of the ready candidate for such embellishment.
It’s also being considered that if young age travelers spend more time at the digital exhibits and less on the actual sites, it has the possibility of reducing the fading of color of the most remarkable artwork in an array of people, palaces and pavilions. Immensely benefitted from corporate sponsorship, Hampi, in Karnataka has 3D exhibits and fine digital displays.
In the same way, Ellora, world-famous for its magnificent proportions and astonishing monolithic sculptures, would profit a lot from digital exhibits on-site as large number of the original statues on site have been damaged over the past centuries. To add to it, quality public conveniences are lacking in Ellora and Ajanta needs to neat.
