While these distinctive historic urban areas are important to the overall quality of our communities, the views and visual relationships between historic townscapes and people are often destroyed during rapid change, especially in developing urban settings. In India, traditional cities are developed around a historic core , where the core area is called as walled city or inner city . The typical plan of the inner cities puts the temple at the centre, the markets immediately adjacent. The seat of government / palace is seldom at the centre, and is usually on the outskirts. Bordering these public areas are the residential districts. Some of these ancient cities have well defined boundary or setting. Temple  A.SIVARAMAN REG NO 1350012 M.ARCH (GENERAL) 2013-2015 BATCH HINDUSTAN UNIVERSITY HISTORIC REINTERPRETATION AND CONSERVATION OF SRIRANGAM TOWN In historical south Indian cities like Madurai, Trichy, SRIRANGAM , Thanjavur, Chidambaram, Kumbakonam etc. the temple dominates the plan at the centre. `These sacred monuments were constructed in such a position that they would dominate the surrounding area, providing a focal point for the town or city. Today there is a threat to this viewscape, the urban development which is happening in the immediate setting of the temple is obscuring the visual dominance, importance or its aesthetic contribution once these monuments had to the townscape. Srirangam, whose temple-city of Sri Ranganathaswami   comprises no less than seven enclosures and 21 gopura .Construction of this monumental edifice between two rivers near Tiruchinapalli (Madras State) probably began in the 10th century. Today its structure and sculptures show signs of serious wear and weathering. At the request of the Indian Government, Unesco has made an on-the-spot investigation of the problems of renovating and conserving the Srirangam temple.  A.SIVARAMAN REG NO 1350012 M.ARCH (GENERAL) 2013-2015 BATCH HINDUSTAN UNIVERSITY HISTORIC REINTERPRETATION AND CONSERVATION OF SRIRANGAM TOWN SRIRANGAM :One of the largest in India (its outer wall is four miles in circumference), it is perhaps the most representative of the Vijayanagar dynasty architectural style (1350-1565) with its multiple monolithic columns adorned with stone sculpture and decorative carving
