Tiruchi lags behind in entertainment facilities

The central region is rich with various tourist spots that attract tourists from across the country round the year.

Poompuhar, the Danish Fort at Tharangambadi, Point Calimere, Sittannavasal, Kudumiyanmalai, Thirumayam fort, Ranjankudi fort, Karaivetti birds sanctuary, Grand Anicut, Puliancholai, Mukkombu, Top Sengattupatti are some of the famous tourist destinations which cheer the locals and tourists, particularly during the holidays.

Apart from these, the innumerable number of Temples, Basilicas and Churches, Dargahs attract stream of tourists and devotees not only from India, but also from foreign countries. However, the lack of adequate entertainment facilities in Tiruchi district, in particular in Tiruchi town, has been matter of concern not only to the local people, but also to government authorities. Compared to districts like Thanjavur, Nagapattinam, Tirunelveli, Kanyakumari, Tiruchi lags very much behind as far as the presence of tourist spots are concerned.

It is the people of Tiruchi city who suffer due to the absence of entertainment facilities. Mukkumbo is the only tourist spot abetting Tiruchi city. Even the facilities here are not up to the mark. The Kallanai, too abets the city, but it is situated in the neighbouring Thanjavur district.

Thanjavur is a municipal town, not as big compared to Tiruchi city. The Sivagangai park in the heart of the town satisfies the entertainment needs of the local, particularly the children. The water sport facility, the toy train, the mini zoo have always been major sources of attraction. The toy train and the winch facility were introduced more than five decades ago, and the water sport facility, a couple of decades ago. What brings much contentment to the people is that fee for using the water sport etc is very cheap, affordable even by the weaker sections.

The Tirunelveli Corporation a few years ago, set up mini parks in all the residential localities with public contribution under the ‘namakku naame' scheme. These mini parks, accounting for facilities like swings, sea-saw enable youngsters to pass their time in a fit manner in their own locality. No doubt, these parks are major crowd pullers in the evening hours.

Tiruchi, despite boasting itself as a major city, has no such facilities. Parks are available, but they are not properly maintained by the Corporation. None of these parks have any facility like toy trains, mini swimming pool which will attract youngsters. “Setting up these facilities will not be a costly affair. Even private exhibitions conducted in the city manage to have toy trains, joy ride facilities. The same facilities should be set up in all the parks within the city limits,” says Esther, a homemaker.

The locals have hailed the decision of the government to create various infrastructure facilities like drinking water, toilet, children's park, pathway, lighting facility, at an outlay of Rs. 65 lakh in Mukkombu. The Tourist Department should take initiative for completing these works at the earliest, she adds.


Very True :(

Fun on wheels for tourists soon

Image

With the state government planning to introduce open-deck buses, tourists will soon get a “top view” of Tamil Nadu.

The tourism department has proposed to run the buses in Chennai, Madurai and Tiruchy.

“These destinations receive thousands of visitors every day. To facilitate a better view of the varied attractions in these cities, chief minister J. Jayalalithaa has ordered introduction of open-deck buses,” tourism minister S. Gokula Indira told the Assembly Wednesday.

The low-floor environment-friendly buses will be similar to those used for sightseeing in London.

The facility is available in neighbouring Andhra Pradesh, where the buses are used for tours to the historic Charminar.

“This will be a double-decker bus. Tourists would be seated on the top floor without a roof and enjoy aerial view of sites,” a senior tourism official said.

He said the modalities to operate the buses would be worked out soon and the tours would be held mostly in the evenings.

New projects to boost tourism in TN

Tamil Nadu has decided to further exploit its potential to draw tourists by formulating specific packages combining pilgrimage, heritage and ecology. The packages being planned include a mega circuit connecting several temple towns of central Tamil Nadu; an East Coast circuit (pilgrimage and heritage) and a Southern circuit (pilgrimage and eco circuit), tourism minister S. Gokula Indira told the State Assembly on Wednesday.

The mega circuit programme, aimed at improving tourism infrastructure in temple towns, will be implemented at a cost of Rs. 50 crore during this financial year. This will be funded under the Central Financial Assistance programme. The circuit would connect Tiruchi, Thanjavur, Kumbakonam, Mayiladuthurai, Sirkazhi, Chidambaram and Vriddhachalam. Destinations along this mega circuit would be developed, the minister told the Assembly.

The minister said that the Tamil Nadu Tourism Development Corporation is planning to launch 10 new tours this financial year. They include tours to Nagarathar temples, Divya Desam temples in Kancheepuram and Tiruvallur district, Thirukkadayur temple, Thiruvudai Amman, Vadivudai Amman and Kodiyudai Amman temples, to Madurai , Tiruchi , to Courtallam and nearby areas, to Yelagiri hills, to Kolli hills and to the freedom fighters' circuit.

The Helicopter Corporation of India and heli taxi operators have been contacted to operate heli taxi connecting important tourist destinations such as Udhagamandalam, Kodaikanal and Rameswaram. Cruise tourism will be promoted in association with Chennai and Tuticorin Port Trusts. Besides this, water sports and water taxis will be promoted along the Marina, she said.

Medical tourism will also be promoted in co-ordination with the leading hospitals in the state. Similarly, wellness tourism, comprising yoga, meditation, ayurveda, spa and nature cure will be promoted in co-ordination with reputed institutions. The Government has issued orders constituting a core committee for promotion of medical and wellness tourism.

Sculpture park opened at museum

Image

The hitherto derelict courtyard of the Tiruchi government museum located in Town Hall ,where Rani Mangammal once held court, has something to offer now for history and art lovers, with a sculpture park being opened on Tuesday.

A total of 45 stone sculptures of gods and goddesses dating from 13{+t}{+h}century to 18{+t}{+h}century are on display at the rear portion of the museum. Totally, 21 sculptures have been mounted on individual concrete pedestals installed on a hexagonal plinth with paved flooring. Twenty-four other sculptures are lined up on a long platform on the side. While the pedestals were constructed at a cost of Rs. 56,000, other expenses including paved flooring were drawn from the maintenance fund. The sculpture park was opened by Collector Jayashree Muralidharan. Apart from idols of Vishnu, Sridevi, Brahma, Ganesha, Murugan and Dwarkabalala, sculptures include an 18{+t}{+h}century sacrificial altar, stone nandhis and lingams.

The sculptures, earlier relegated to the backyard of the museum, have been given prominent display in a bid to attract more visitors, S.Paneerselvam, curator (additional charge) of the museum said.

Twenty more sculptures would be added to the park and a pedestal has already been constructed, S.Dhanasekaran, special grade assistant told The Hindu . The museum has also planned to make the façade more impressive by setting up pedestals for sculptures at the entrance, he said. With admission fee waived for school students, the museum hopes to bring in more visitors.

திருச்சி காவிரி ஆற்றுக்குள் "பீச்' அசூர வேகத்தில் நடக்குது பணி

திருச்சி: திருச்சி காவிரி ஆற்றில் "பீச்' அமைக்கும் பணி தீவிரமாக நடந்து வருகிறது. விரைவில் திறப்புவிழா நடக்கும் என எதிர்பார்க்கப்படுகிறது. திருச்சி மாநகர மக்களுக்கு பொழுதுபோக்கு அம்சங்கள் ஏதும் இல்லாத நிலையில், அவர்களின் முக்கிய பொழுதுபோக்கு மையமாக திருச்சி காவிரிப்பாலம் விளங்குகிறது. தினந்தோறும் மாலைப்பொழுதில் குடும்பத்தினரோடு சுத்தமான காவிரிக்காற்றை அனுபவிப்பது பலரது வழக்கம். இதற்காக அவர்கள் குடும்பம், குடும்பமாக அண்ணாசிலை அருகேயுள்ள காவிரி பாலத்துக்கு வருவதை வழக்கமாக கொண்டுள்ளனர். குறிப்பாக, திருச்சி மாவட்டத்தில் 100 டிகிரிக்கும் மேல் வெப்பம் தகிக்கின்ற நிலையில், காவிரிப்பாலத்தில் வழக்கத்துக்கு மாறாக மக்கள் கூட்டம் அலைமோதுகிறது. இதனால், திருச்சி- ஸ்ரீரங்கம் முக்கியச்சாலையாக விளங்கும் காவிரிப்பாலத்தில் கடும் போக்குவரத்து நெரிசல் ஏற்படுகிறது. இதை நன்குணர்ந்த, திருச்சி மாவட்டத்தை சேர்ந்த அமைச்சர் சிவபதி, மீண்டும் அமைச்சரான பிறகு, "கோடைக்காலத்தில் திருச்சி மாநகர மக்கள் சமாளிக்கும் வகையில் காவிரி ஆற்றுக்குள் "பீச்' அமைக்கப்படும்' என்று மாநகர மக்களுக்கு வாக்குறுதி அளித்தார். அதை செயல்படுத்து ம் விதமாக, திருச்சி மாநகராட்சி சார்பில், காவிரிப்பாலத்துக்கு அ ருகே, காவிரி ஆற்றுக்குள் மண்டிக்கிடந்த நாணல் புற்கள், புதர்கள் பொக்லைன் இயந்திரம் கெ õண்டு நேற்று காலை அகற்றப்ப ட்டன. மேடு, பள்ளம் இல்லாம ல் மணல் சமப்படுத்தப்பட்டது.
மாலை மற்றும் இரவுநேரத்தில் பொதுமக்கள் பயமின்றி காவிரி ஆற்றுக்குள் நடமாட, வரிசையாக இரும்புக்கம்பங்கள் நட்டு வைக்கப்பட்டு, ஏராளமான "போகஸ் லைட்டு'கள் அமைக்கப்பட்டுள்ளன. விரைவில் காவிரி "பீச்'சை அமைச்சர் சிவபதி திறந்து வைப்பார் என்று எதிர்பார்க்கப்படுகிறது. கண்காணிப்பு அவசியம்: காவிரி ஆற்றுக்குள் பொதுமக்கள் உலாவ வழிவகை செய்ததது பாராட்டத்தக்கது என்றாலும், காதலர் என்ற போர்வையில் அத்துமீறுபவர்களை கண்காணிக்க வேண்டியது மிகவும் அவசியம். இல்லையென்றால் "பீச்' அமைக்கப்பட்டதின் நோக்கமே சிதைத்துவிடும். அதேபோல, காவிரி ஆற்றுக்குள்ளே இருந்து பல்வேறு வழிகளில் திருடர்கள் மற்றும் சமூக விரோதிகள் எளிதாக தப்பிக்க முடியும் என்பதால், அடிக்கடி போலீஸ் ரோந்து வருவது அவசியம்.
