After indicating that Yadadri temple could be thrown open to the public in May, chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao directed officials to complete the renovation works on Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy temple complex before the scheduled period.
Taking stock of the ongoing temple works at a meeting in Pragathi Bhavan, the CM said queue lines with 350 ft width should be set up for the benefit of pilgrims. When the officials showed him four model designs of kalashams (metal pots) which would be placed on top of the queue line rods, the CM selected one design. The CM set April 15 as deadline for completion of work on queue lines.
He said the compound wall on the north side of the temple should be demolished to pave way for a queue line there. He asked the officials to use brass designs for deepa sthambham (light Pole), compound wall and pedestal of the light pole.
While inquiring about Siva temple inside the premises, KCR said brass tridents should be placed on the compound walls. “After the refurbishment, Yadadri shrine should show its exclusivity among all the temples in the world. The entire Yadadri temple complex being reconstructed with ‘Krishna sila’ (black stone) will stand out for its unique architecture and design,” he said.
He said devotees in lakhs from all parts of the country would be visiting the temple. “Measures should be taken to see that devotees are not put to any difficulties during their holy visit,” he said.
He also discussed with the temple authorities on the precautions to be taken and action plan for the ornamental look of the temple.
