GUNTUR: Efforts have begun to organise the bi-centenary celebrations of Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy Temple, east Gali Gopuram, on a grand scale at Mangalagiri.
District Collector B. Ramanjaneyulu, who chaired a meeting of all departmental heads, including Tourism Department officials, instructed the heads of departments to send estimates of the proposed works. The temple constructed in the year 1807 by Vijayanagara Kings, is one the famous landmarks in Mangalagiri and draws hundreds of pilgrims from all over the country. Mangalagiri MLA Kandru Kamala and temple Executive Officer Eemani Chandrasekhar were also present in the meeting.
Officials of the Endowments Department, municipal and R & B, Panchayat Raj, Public Health, RTC, revenue, police, VGTM-UDA, handlooms and Textiles departments discussed various aspects of the festivities.
Among the major issues that were taken up during the meetings were works relating to development of the lake, fencing the peda koneru, development of grounds, development of greenery alongside the temple, extension of parking lot and a boundary wall encircling the Gali Gopuram.
The committee also discussed the possible erection of statue of Vasireddy Venkatadri Naidu, the architect of Gali Gopuram.
The Endowments Department was also mulling over erecting a makeshift dais where cultural programmes would be staged.
