Mysuru: Rare 369 historic artefacts were recovered from a treasury in Amba Vilas Palace here that was opened after 10 years. Some of the rare artefacts found in the treasure chest were copper manuscripts, an idol of Lord Nataraja and coins, said Tourism Minister H K Patil here on Monday.

Speaking to mediapersons at the Palace office here on Monday, the minister said that these rare artefacts which have a huge historic significance need to be allowed for public viewing and the old deputy commissioner’s office should be developed as a museum to house such rare artefacts. The deputy commissioner’s office, which is a heritage building is an ideal edifice to house such rare treasures, he added. He further said that measures are being taken to ensure safety and regular maintenance of the edifice.

Observing that lack of information on nearby police stations for tourists visiting Mysuru, the minister was of the opinion that the government was contemplating to introduce Tourist Police system. The system, said the minister, will enable tourists to have quick information on nearby police stations, in case to lodge a complaint. Besides, the system will be embedded with QR code system which will ease the inconvenience of buying tickets at various tourist places, standing in queues and such.

On the upcoming Dasara celebrations, Minister Patil emphasised that work related to setting up of Dasara Authority will be discussed in the coming days. He also said that efforts will be made to ensure tourist-friendly tourism in Mysuru and elsewhere.

He expressed his displeasure over the functioning of Karnataka Exhibition Authority. There have been complaints from the administration level too. A three-member committee will be formed with deputy commissioner as its chairman to discuss how to effectively make use of 80 acre space. The committee will submit its report in 20 days, he informed.

Deputy Commissioner Dr K V Rajendra, Tourism Department Additional Chief Secretary S Kapil Mohan, secretaries Ram Vilas Prasad and B J Vijay Kumar were present.
