The state government of South India’s Telangana is planning to develop the ancient Jogulamba temple in the district into a leading heritage tourism hub of India. They are also planning to attract tourists and large number of pilgrims.
As already Jogulamba temple in Alampur mandal of the district is renowned as the 8th Shakthi Peetham in India and a large number of pilgrims come to this temple to offer prayers from various states in India, now the State government and the district administration is planning to do a complete makeover of the temple to make it a leading heritage tourism destination in the country.
As part of this, the district administration of Jogulamba-Gadwal in coordination with the State Tourism department is charting out plans to provide much better facilities and encourage heritage tourism.
Recently, Alampur MLA VM Abraham along with District Collector K Shashank reviewed a draft plan proposed by the Tourism department and after careful review, they had decided to add some more development components before it is sent to the central tourism ministry in New Delhi.
Once this project is approved of by the Central government, the district administration is expecting to get about Rs 50 crore for the implementation of the proposed development activities at the Jogulamba temple.
