Loud noises and sounds do not only affect human beings, animals and plants, but they also affect places. 

 
 
So, to study the effects of light and sound show and vehicular traffic on surrounding areas of Rajwada, the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) has ordered the state archaeology department of Indore to conduct a test.
 
 
According to ASI, vibrations coming out of vehicles and speakers of light and sound show further damage the already deteriorated historical site. 
 
 
So, ASI submitted a 24 page long report to the state archaeology department to conduct technical testing of the magnitude of impact of these two factors on the decay of Rajwada.
 
 
For this, the department has also approached Indian Institute of Technology, Indore and Shri Govindam Seksaria Institute of Technology and Science (SGSITS) for assistance in the technical testing.
 
 
Interestingly, the light and sound show inside Rajwada was started by the state tourism department on May 15, 2015 as to start celebration of 2015 as ‘Tourism Year’.
