Efforts are being made to realize the immense tourist potential of the state by developing places of historical importance, chief minister K.Rosaiah said here after performing the consecration ceremony of ISKCON Golden temple project at chengishkhan pet village on 22nd Friday.

The chief minister lighted the lamp to mark bhoomi puja amid chanting of Vedic hymns of devotees of ISKCON. The temple would be constructed at a cost of Rs.150 crore in an alloted area of 75 acres in the first phase by the Govt. of Andhra Pradesh.

Complementing ISKCON for taking up the initiative for taking up Kondaveedu Spiritual Heritage Revival Project, a global spiritual training recreation and rural development, Dr Rosaiah said though vagaries of time have taken a heavy toll on the Kondaveedu fort, few remnants of its historical glory have been preserved for posterity.

He went down the memory lane and recollected his student days in 1950’s, when he used to trek the hill all the way to the Kondavedu fort.

He said the state government would be developing the fort as a major tourist destination. A ghat road extending to 14.5 km would be laid to the hill top and the archaeological, tourism and panchayat raj departments would be involved in the development of the fort, Endowment minister Shri Gade Venkat Reddy, Union Minister of State for Textiles Panabaka lakshmi, Forest Minister Shri P. Ramachandra Reddy, Housing board minister Shri Silpa Mohan Reddy, Educational minister D. Manikya Vara Prasad, and other MLA’s were present. Revathi Raman Das, Zonal Secretary ISKCON Andhra Pradesh, Satya Gopinath Das, Project Director and Ram Murari Das, project coordinator were present. District Collector B. Ramamjaneyulu presided over the function.
