REVIEW FOR ROCK WALK TO NAYA QILA BY SOCIETY TO SAVE ROCKS
This weekend, rock your feet not on a dance floor but along a walk to the Naya Quila. The Society to Save Rocks wants to show citizens and the government alike the value of our heritage. Going by its tradition the Society is organizing a walk to the Naya Quila to generate awareness and promote preservation of the rocky landscape.
This time the Society members have ambitious plans of walking on top of the outer wall, which encloses the legendary Baobab tree. With its huge and hollow trunk, the tree is also known as the elephant tree or the robbers' tree.
The walkers are expected to meet at 4pm at the NMDC building, Masab Tank, from where the walk begins. The Society has received the INTACH Heritage Award 2003 for its untiring work for the preservation of the ancient rocks of the Deccan. It has also received a Certificate of the Andhra Pradesh Department of Culture and Tourism as best NGO promoting tourism and the National Tourism Award 2002 - 2003 by the Govt. of India
