Sound system at Borra Caves to explain its History

To increase the footfall at Borra Caves state department has come with a new initiative.

The explanation would be given in three languages - English, Telugu and Hindi. At present the system introduced is in English and the Telugu,Hindu versions would start from April.

Guides belonging to the tribal communities used to explain the history and characteristics of the place, which has become difficult for foreign tourists and non locals to understand the language.

In order to overcome the language barrier in explaining the Caves history sound system idea has come into activity.

Once the tourists enter the premises, there will be details about the caves and the sanitation around it followed by the history of the caves formation and the tribal groups residing in the area.

Near the middle of the caves, the tourists will get to know the shapes of the caves and the measures taken up to protect them.

The Borra Caves are located on the East Coast of India, in the Ananthagiri hills of the Araku Valley near Visakhapatnam. In 1807, son of William King of the Geological Survey of India discovered the caves.

The caves, one of the largest in the country, at an elevation of about 2,313 ft, distinctly exhibit a variety of speleothems ranging in size and irregularly shaped stalactites and stalagmites.

The caves are basically karstic limestone structures extending to a depth of 260 ft, and are considered the deepest caves in India.
