Sri Lankan team visits Epigraphy Museum

Staff Correspondent

MYSORE: A high-level cultural delegation from Sri Lanka, comprising archaeologists, on Thursday visited the Museum of Epigraphy at the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) office in Mysore.

The nine-member team, led by Sri Lankan archaeological expert A.M. Piyatissa Senanayake, went around the museum, where a collection of coins belonging to the erstwhile dynasties that ruled India since 300 A.D., ancient Indian scripts, impressions of ancient edicts and other archaeological findings are kept.

Pointing out that India and Sri Lanka enjoyed historical and mythological links, Dr. Senanayake emphasised the need for a joint research by India and Sri Lanka in the field of archaeology. Dr Senanayake expressed his desire to stay in Mysore and conduct research.

The former Director of Archaeological Survey of India M.S. Nagaraja Rao, who welcomed the delegation along with the Director of Epigraphy, K.M. Bhadri, recalled his 30 years of association with Sri Lankan experts ever since he helped them open a postgraduate centre on epigraphy in Sri Lanka.

Just like India learning a lot from Sri Lanka in archaeological research, Sri Lanka too had taken the tradition from India and progressed in the field.
