“This is the first time a ‘heritage lighting’ is being done for Charminar. We haven’t used any kind of heat intensive lighting for the monument. The objective is to showcase the architectural splendour, beauty of the monument with proper lighting to showcase the lost glory of the monument,” said Sai Tallpragada, coordinator of International Association of Lighting Designers.
GHMC officials, who have been undertaking beautification works around the monument, are elated with the progress they have made so far.
“You will see a different picture of Charminar in six months once we complete the beautification process. We have adopted the famous beautification project of Istanbul’s Blue Mosque as a role model. It is purely a citizen-driven project,” said, GHMC director (Town Planning), K Srinivasa Rao.
