CM examins Yadagirigutta development designs

Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao on Monday examined the designs pertaining to development of main temple of the presiding deity on Yadagirigutta and its surroundings in Nalgonda district.

In a review meeting, the Chief Minister discussed about the designs with temple ‘stapathi’ Anand Sai, architects Raju and Jagan, Vice-Chairman and CEO of Yadagirigutta Development Authority J. Kishan Rao, Special Secretary in CMO K. Bhoopal Reddy. He directed them that the development works should multiply the thoughts of spiritualism among the pilgrims and visitors, particularly on the hillock.

The surroundings of the main temple and the hillock should be developed into a green belt with a variety of plants, the Chief Minister suggested. He went through the designs of the main temple, four ‘mada veedhis’, four ‘raja gopurams’, pedestrian pathway, devotees’ queue complex, area for organising ‘brahmotsavams’, expansion of bathing pond on the north-eastern side, shivalayam on the east and Aanjaneyaswamy statue at the main entrance on the west – all to be developed on the six acres space on the hillock.

Besides, he also examined the designs of temple kitchen, ‘addala mandapam’, ‘kalyana mandapam’ and ‘yaga shala’. A press release from the Chief Minister’s office stated that clarity has come on the location of various constructions on the hillock and in the surrounding areas as part of the development plans.

The Chief Minister also directed the officials to plan construction of shopping complexes, stay facilities for pilgrims. Except the sanctum sanctorum located in a cave on the hillock, the remaining area would be remodelled and developed as per the provisions of ‘aagama shastra’, the Chief Minister said.

He wanted officials to plan to develop the nearby Baswapur tank as a major reservoir and also develop a theme park adjacent to the reservoir on the lines of Brundavan Gardens of Mysuru.
