Amritsar, July 20
A four-member team of the Archaeological Survey of India today inspected the tunnel-like structure discovered during excavation while building a new ‘joda ghar’ in the Golden Temple complex.
The ASI was approached to ascertain the antiquity of the Nanakshahi brick-made structure found during the excavation near Akal Takht secretariat. The team of archaeologists, led by AK Mishra, inspected the structure, took its pictures and measurements. Some specimens of the structure have also been taken to check its heritage status. SGPC chief Bibi Jagir Kaur said if the site was found to be related to the Sikh history, it would be preserved. Though there was no proof to authenticate its historic or religious significance, it is learnt to be a private property, ‘Gianian Da Bunga’. — TNS
