‘Build temple corridor to boost spiritual tourism’

The Hindu Devalayala Parirakshana Samithi founder, Kamalananda Bharathi, has appealed to the Telangana government to build a temple corridor connecting all the temples located within 80 to 100 km radius around Hyderabad by laying a ring road to boost spiritual tourism in the State.

Speaking to reporters after unveiling Swami Vivekananda statue at Veliminedu village of Chityal mandal here on Wednesday, Mr. Bharathi said that spiritual tourism certainly would get a boost if the State government lays such a ring road connecting all the temples.

He said Sri Lakshminarasimha Swamy devasthanam, Yadagiriguta temple, Cheruvugattu temple located near Narketpally, Kolanpaka Shiva temple, Vemulakonda temple, Vargal Saraswathi temple, Madavananda Bharathi Peetham near Gajwel, Keesara temple and many others should be brought under this corridor.

Suggesting the government to operate special buses in these areas, he said tourist packages could be offered to the visitors to highlight the rich heritage of Telangana.

Mr. Bharathi also urged the government to establish an institute of sculpture and art in Warangal. He stressed the need for setting up such institutions in Telangana to protect the art.

Meanwhile, he appealed to the managements of all the temples in Telangana to perform ‘Varuna Yagam’ and ‘Satha Ghatabhisekham’ to appease the rain god, in the wake of prolonged dry spell in the region.

Nalgonda Archaka Sangham president Vasudeva Sharma and others were present.
