Hello there ... I am presently having a lovely holiday in India but I am amazed by the amount of writings on the walls of the historical buildings here. There are guards with guns in the buildings yet there is " Christines loves Alper 2004 " or "Jamal was here 1993 " . I'm so surprized that they let people write in these historical buildings. Can't the historical foundation have guides to tell guests when they tour the places that they are not allowed to write on the walls. It looks like they dont care about their historical monuments or if I particular person feels that his or her religious group used to live in the palace that they have the right to leave their mark . I think the guide should educate people and guards can be strict about this or all the places will have love notes written on them. The Taj Mahal is just beautiful and I spent 2 hrs looking at the beautiful monument. Just amazing it is...Take care everyone as I'm on my way to enjoy Goa tomorrow. [/SIZE]

Some historical areas do escape "scrutiny" by "unconcerned" individuals. It is usually buildings and monuments that are right by the roadside that are subject to such "writings". Even temple walls are affected by this behavior. Well-maintained areas, on the other hand, don't have this problem. As an example, the Gandhi museum in Madurai is set within a bigger garden and is very well maintained. Guards are typically useless as there are many "loopholes" (literally) for people to get in and out of private properties. Hope you had a good time in Goa!!
