U.S. Ambassador to India Timothy J. Roemer visits AIIS in August 2010

AIIS staff was delighted and much honored to welcome the U.S. Ambassador to India, Honorable Mr. Timothy J. Roemer, to the AIIS center in Gurgaon on August 20, 2010. After a brief welcome and introduction to AIIS, Professor Frederick Asher, former AIIS president, and AIIS staff members gave him a tour of the two research centers. The Ambassador then inaugurated a travelling photo-exhibition and launched the website resulting from the funds received through the Ambassador’s Fund for Cultural Preservation for “Documentation of Unexplored Indo – Islamic Monuments in the Hinterland of the Grand Trunk Road in Haryana and Punjab.” Students from G.D. Goenka Public School and college students from the Department of Architecture, DCR University of Science and Technology, Murthal, Haryana were invited to participate in the launch ceremony. These two groups had participated in previous workshops and documentation demos organized at the AIIS center for the Indo-Islamic documentation program. An exhibition of photographs and architectural drawings resulting from the Indo-Islamic Documentation Program was inaugurated on this occasion.
