Inscription stones are original documentation of the people of a region, their culture, religion and language. These stones help form a picture of the social fabric of the past including insights into various spheres such as linguistic plurality, construction of lakes, tax practices, donations, grants, governance, etc.

Many of these inscription stones in Bengaluru date back several centuries (as early as 750CE) and are currently located in derelict conditions, amidst communities that are unaware of their existence or relevance.

Inscription stones of Bangalore is a civic activism project aimed at raising awareness and protecting ancient inscription stones found in the Bengaluru region. The project has been using technology (social media, mapping, 3D scanning, 3D printing, OCR) to protect & preserve the dwindling inscription stones.

High resolution 3D models of inscription stones have been generated. Apart from enhanced readability of the inscription, the scans allow a myriad of possibilities for preservation.

The stone was first scanned using Artec Eva. However, Artec Space Spider was also used to scan the inscription part since it demanded high resolution for capturing the shallow inscription. The scans obtained from both scanners were merged and post processed using Artec Studio software.

‘Inscription Stones of Bangalore’ is a civic activism project to raise awareness and protect ancient inscription stones (shila shaasanas) found in the Bengaluru region. Inscription stones across Bengaluru have been located, mapped and documented by photos through extensive exploration & visits. However, the larger goal is to document the remaining inscription stones in Bengaluru by 3D scanning. Several films and documentaries are being produced to raise awareness among the youth and to educate them about our rich cultural heritage.

YKC Wadiyar – The Maharaja of Mysore, recently said “We are obligated to preserve our heritage”. He also mentioned that modern technologies such as 3D scanning & 3D printing were used to create highly accurate replicas of these inscription stones and urged citizens to extend their support to the project.
