Madurai's tourist sites to be improved and shine again

As usual our Madurai Collector U Sagayam IAS has gone on a raid into all the heritage sites (most important) tourist locations in Madurai just around Madurai Meenakshi Amman Temple. Some of the locations like - Rayar Gopuram, Pathu Thoon (ten Pillars), Palace Road, Vilakuthoon, Pudhu Mandapam etc.,

He strictly has given warning on removal of encroachments, untidyness and cleaning of the area around Meenakshmi Amman Temple. Even a plan of laying a similar color path of road from Thirumalai Naicker Mahal to Meenakshi Amman Temple, so that tourists can easily look around important pieces of monuments in Madurai very easily, even without the help of any tourist guides.

Sagayam visited the sites located on a two-km stretch from Thirumalai Naicker Mahal to Meenakshi Amman Temple. The district administration has also planned to pave the two-km stretch with a particular colour so that foreign tourists could walk from Thirumalai Naicker Mahal to the Meenakshi Amman temple touching upon all the heritage sites along the way without the help of guides.

The encroachments have not only left the sites clogged, but also give room for vandalism. "Thirumalai Naicker who built the magnificent palace has not left his name engraved anywhere there. But few vandals who enter the Mahal tend to write their names everywhere," rued an official.

People - please be aware not to write your name or some scribblings on these monuments!
