New road from Mukkombu to Butterfly Park takes shape

Quote:
Tourism Department sanctions ₹2.75 crore for the project

In a major step to draw more visitors to the Butterfly Park at Melur near Srirangam, the State government has decided to form a new road between Mukkombu and the park.


The move is aimed at facilitating picnickers, who visit Mukkombu, to go to Butterfly park and vice versa on a short route.

Currently, there is no proper road connecting Mukkombu and Butterfly park. The Butterfly park, which has become one of the important picnic spots in Tiruchi district, can be accessed along the road that runs along the Cauvery river via Melur in Srirangam.

Under the initiative, the new road will be laid along the left river bund of Cauvery from Mukkombu to the Butterfly park.

The Tourism Department has sanctioned ₹2.75 crore for the project. The Public Works Department (RC division) will executive the work.

The project will also strengthen the bund for a five km stretch.

Collector K. Rajamani told The Hindu that the initiative would be a big boost to promote tourism in the district.

Once the road project was completed, the tourists could easily commute between the two important picnic spots in the district. Tourists, who visited Mukkombu, could reach Butterfly park within 5 to 10 minutes.

He added that preliminary works had been undertaken to form the road and steps would be taken to complete the project as quickly as possible.

Weekend Pachamalai package offers memorable trekking

Quote:
To unexplored green hill ranges in the Eastern Ghats

A weekend package for nature lovers to explore Pachamalai Hills has been unveiled by the Forest Department's Tiruchi Division, coinciding with the International Mountain Day celebration.

The package brochure released on Monday by District Collector K. Rajamani in the presence of District Forest Officer Naga Sathish Gidijala promises treks to hitherto unexplored lush green hill ranges in the Eastern Ghats on Tiruchi district's north-western border.

The package fee includes entry fee, accommodation, food and local travel.

The verdant landscape encompassing rivers and waterfalls will be a feast to eyes and ears as well, assures the Forest Department, which has created substantial eco-tourism facility in Top Sengattupatti village for comfortable stay and camping. The stay option includes ‘tree-top’ model suite, dormitory for trekking groups and British Heritage Rest House.

The Department has started providing information over phone of the exclusive weekend package that would last for 24 hours through the District Forest Office (0431-2414265) and Forest Range Office, Thuraiyur Range, Thuraiyur (04327-222706), and has made booking through email: dfotry@gmail.com, mandatory for prospective nature lovers keen on deriving utility.

The trip costing Rs. 1,000 per person will start at 5.00 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, the DFO said.

The package addresses twin purposes of promoting sustainable development of the local communities in the mountains and spreading environmental awareness among nature enthusiasts through eco-tourism.

During their night stay in the newly-created facilities, the visitors will have opportunities to witness the interesting life-style of the indigenous ‘Malayalee’ tribe, and get introduced to their cuisines and culture. Dinner will be to the accompaniment of camp fire.

The visitors will be taken on trek along Kambaar-Arasadi, Mamarathu Cholai-Keelakarai, Kaliyamman Kovil-Senbagam and Mamarathu Cholai-Moolakadu nature trail paths at the break of dawn and to Chinna Mangalam, Korayaru and Mayil Uthu water falls after breakfast.

After a lunch break, the visitors will be taken to temples before returning in the evening, Mr. Gidijala said.

Soon, this fort will beckon travellers on NH 45

Image

The 17th Century fortress is one of the historic sites near Perambalur on National Highway 45. Even a Tamil film, Ponnar Shankar , was shot there a few years ago. But Ranjankudi Fort hardly receives any visitors today. Things may, however, soon change.

The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI), which maintains the structure, is engaged in erecting a compound wall around it. Landscaping and a few other developmental plans are also on the pipeline, officials indicate.

The fort, which is also called Ranjankudikottai and Nanjankudikottai, is believed to have been built by the Jagridar of the Nawab of Carnatic. It was the focal point during the Battle of Valikondah, a nearby village, when the British troops supported by Mohammed Ali won over the French supported by Chanda Sahib in 1751, according to the official Perambalur district website.

The fort is oblong in shape with semicircular bastions, a moat and three fortifications at different levels, built with cut stone blocks. The lower bastion is the main rampart surrounded by a mud wall. The open ground — once a battlefield — is known as Pettai and can be approached through a flight of steps. The top-tier is called Kottai Medu, which was a watch tower and also housed cannons.

There is also a small waterbody atop, which served as a storage tank, said P. Chandrasekaran of ASI. The pit in the centre of the fort was used as a prison for male prisoners, while female prisoners were jailed inside small blocks inside the fort.

As part of its plans to draw students to the fort, the ASI, in association with the district administration, is taking several steps, he said.

Besides construction of a two-foot-tall dwarf wall with a grill atop around the fort, the ASI wants to improve the facade of the site by landscaping the area. “A team of officials from the Horticulture branch of ASI have already inspected the site and the landscaping work will be executed soon. A few more development/conservation plans are on the pipeline and you can some the improvements next year,” Mr. Chandrasekaran said.

Sign boards directing visitors to the historic site will be put up on National Highway 45, he added.
