Only exceptions of conservation in the period before enlightment could be listed as some temples, sanctuaries etc. They were preserved with FEAR-CURSE etc, but not for a concern for conservation.??
and some Palaces were conserved as they were the houses of representatives of GOD in the world. ?? ????
