Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao will reportedly visit the Sri Lakshmi Narasimha temple in Yadadri-Bhuvanagiri district, which has been teeming with devotees following the drastic redevelopment
it has been undergoing recently, on March 4.
During his tour, he will inspect the Pushkarini, Annadana Satram, Kalyana katta, and presidential suite being built for VVIP devotees on the premises. He will reportedly also inspect the site of a proposed bus depot near the temple, and will hold discussions with the temple officials on the remaining works.
Besides taking stock of the ongoing renovation works, Rao may take a decision regarding its reopening.
(The CM often visits the Yadadri temple since the works to modernise it commenced. On a similar visit, in September last year, after inspecting the premises, he had distributed bananas to a group of monkeys
that he felt were hungry. A video of the interaction, which took place when KCR was returning to the city after his inspection, had even gone viral.)
The TRS regime has been heavily invested in the project, and has expressed its desire to turn the temple into a "world class religious centre". It has, therefore, been monitoring the progress of the redevelopment works regularly. Roads and Buildings Minister V Prashanth Reddy had held a review meeting
with the officials of the R&B department, on January 3, to discuss the progress of the construction, and had instructed them to expedite the remaining works.
Once the construction is finished, the temple premises, which have now been expanded to cover 3.5 acres, will house a presidential suite, 13 VVIP villas and a host of amenities for the devotees.
