HYDERABAD:A proposal to develop 1500-acre Geo Biodiversity Cultural Park in heart of Warangal city, was approved by city-level committee under Heritage City Development and Augmentation Yojana (HRIDAY) scheme, and sent to a higher-level committee for approval.

The proposal which is expected to be approved by end of this month, would be the biggest park in India. HRIDAY is a Central government scheme to help protect and promote heritage cities. Warangal in Telangana, and Amaravathi in Andhra Pradesh were selected to be developed as heritage cities, along with 10 other cities across the country.

The park would be developed in different parts of the city, but connected throughout, said Divay Gupta, principal director of Architectural division of INTACH, New Delhi, at a workshop titled ‘Telangana and Heritage’, here on Thursday.

He added that apart from Archaeology Survey of India, and State-protected monuments, 95 structures in Warangal which have heritage value were listed by INTACH.
