The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) is using Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) technology in its ongoing scientific survey of the Gyanvapi mosque complex in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh. GPR technology involves sending electromagnetic waves below the ground to detect anomalies like bricks, sand, stone, and metals. It helps experts study and analyze the data recorded on a monitor to determine if any structure is buried beneath the mosque and understand the nature of that structure. However, it is important to use GPR technology under expert supervision to ensure accurate results and interpretations. GPR technology plays a crucial role in the survey as it aids in identifying potential structures beneath the site, contributing to the investigation's historical significance and findings.
