The two pedal boats, provided by the corporation at a cost of Rs. 50 lakhs, were let into the Koneru (pond) of the fort for providing recreation to the visitors.
The local MLA, G. Aruna Kumari, inaugurated the facility by taking a ride in the pond, along with the Tourism Board director, Chenji Sarvothamudu, among others. The tariff is pegged at Rs. 10 per head for a 30-minute ride, said P. Siva Reddy, the corporation's divisional manager.
The fort has a historical museum and already offers a `Sound and Light' show on the lines of the one at Golconda fort, which is exciting the Bangalore-based tourists on their way to Tirupati and the boating facility is expected to add on to the attraction.
