Monuments in Karnataka to have Braille signage
February 12, 2017
Visually challenged visitors to monuments in Karnataka can now experience it through braille and the touch-and-feel way.
After the successful implementation of an accessible initiative at Bengaluru's Tipu Palace, there are now plans to take up similar initiatives at other ancient monuments, including Somanathapura in Mysuru and Dariya Daulat in Srirangapatna.
The authorities will put up signboards in braille, explaining the cultural and historical significance of structures at popular monuments. There is easy to walk on pathway that requires no assistance.
Visually challenged visitors can also touch and feel the monument which is not permitted for others. This will not only provide them information, but also gives a sense of involvement.
