A smartphone web app called the eGuide to Giripradakshina is now online at http://www.sriramana.org/eguide/index.html. The eGuide provides devotees and visitors with multimedia content about each of the sacred points of interest (temples, lingams, etc.) around the entire Giripradakshina path. This web app could be instrumental in the World Heritage Site effort, to establish to UNESCO the scope of the historic and spiritual significance of Arunachala. If you have any comments about it, please send a message to Peter Berking at firstname.lastname@example.org
Kamlesh on The eGuide to Arunachala Girip… Dr Chakra Das on The eGuide to Arunachala Girip…
The idea is perhaps noble but not new…
There are also disadvantages of Sri Arunachal becoming a WHS;
An alternative would be to further vigorously strengthen grassroots organisations and encourage local and national administrative bodies to recognise and commit to protection and maintenance of preservation measures of Sri Arunachal and environs…
I have been visiting Arunachala for last 17 years, and have seen building structures coming up all around the parikrama area on both sides of the road. It MUST stop. And I support this place to be included in World Heritage Site. State & Central Government need to protect this Historical/spiritual place for Hindus. I am prepared to support this campaign.
