Eco-tourism site being developed at Arikkamedu to be completed by 2023

Tuesday, February 25, 2020


An eco-tourism site which is being developed at Arikkamedu will be completed by 2023.


Lieutenant Governor Kiran Bedi led a team from Raj Nivas to look over tourist projects funded by centrally-sponsored schemes in and around Puducherry as part of weekend visits.


Bedi said that the Center is fully funding the cost of the infrastructure development of the sites at a cost of Rs. 200 crore. The eco-tourism site being developed at Arikkamedu would offer a complete tourist experience.


The development of this site will offer a unique holistic experience in archaeology, boat ride along mangroves, visits to an art and craft village, a museum and an inter-cultural residential, on-site stay called Franco-Tamil Village.


If well maintained, the lagoon will act as an absorber of excess rainwater becoming a source of circulation of excess water from the sea during heavy rains. The Tourism Department, with its inadequate resources, is already promoting school visits to the art and craft village and short boat rides on the lagoon.


The team also visited the ongoing Tourism Promotion Project at Old Distilleries, the construction of a Cultural Complex and Art Digital Museum and Convention Centre at Old Port.
