Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao visited the ancient Sri Ranganathaswamy temple with his family members at Tiruchirapalli in Tamil Nadu and offered special prayers on Monday.
He was accorded a traditional welcome by the priests and Minister Arin Nehru and district officials.
Mr KCR was planning to call on former governor ESL Narasimhan who reportedly underwent a surgery recently. He was also scheduled to meet Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Mr MK Stalin at Chennai.
Mr Narasihman has been living in Chennai after his long stint as governor of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. CM KCR regards him highly for his efficiency and honesty. Both have very close reciprocal relationships.
