 [MSN] Buddhist monastery faces threat from smugglers
*Buddhist monastery faces threat from smugglers* Statesman News Service KENDRAPARA, May 2: Priceless archaeological treasures are precariously exposed to antique smugglers in and around the famous 8th century Udaygiri Buddhist monastery even as the watch and vigil by the state police were withdrawn from the famous Buddhist destinations.
Excavated in 1986 by Archaeological Survey of India (ASI), the Udaygiri Buddhist monastery nestled along hillocks in Badchana tehsil of Jahpur district wears a pathetic sight of governmental neglect.
Even though excavated, Buddhist treasures are of immense historic importance and are comparable to more famous Buddhist sites like Taxsila, Bodhgaya, Nalanda and Sarnath in terms of discoveries of rich archaeological value, little has been done to preserve antiques or ensure the safety of the site from antique smugglers, according to conservationists.
