Kerala Chief Minister to launch the renovated Veli Tourist Village

Published on : Saturday, October 31, 2020

Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan will launch the renovated Veli Tourist Village on November 2. However, tourists will need to wait for another three or four weeks for entering the tourist spot, due to pending construction works. The chief minister will inaugurate the toy train and urban park at the tourist village online next week.


A tourism department official said that the work of the amphitheatre and the entry gate is yet to be completed. “The work is progressing fast now. Our initial deadline was May, but the pandemic halted the progress,” he said.


“Later, we tried to resume the work, but restrictions due to containment zones and rain stalled it again. We will open the park for the public in two to three weeks, once the work of the entry gate is complete,” added the official.


The construction of a convention center estimated to cost Rs. 10 crore is also in progress. A shell-shaped facilitation center for the tourists is another attraction to be inaugurated by March. Washrooms, cloakroom, first-aid room, lounge, and ticket counter are few of the amenities coming up at Veli.


According to a senior official of the Tourism Department, the miniature train at Veli would be the first solar energy operated train in India. The trial run of the miniature train was held recently.
