Rockfort To Be Facelifted

With the move to enhance the smart city project, the Tiruchirapalli Smart City Limited has made tourism development as a part of the smart city proposal. A total of nine spots have been decided for tourism development in the city and Rockfort is one among them. Main Guard Gate, Rock fort temple tank (Teppakulam), Nathervalli Dargah, Lady of Lourdes Church, War Memorial and Amma Mandapam in Srirangam are the other tourist spots, which have been selected for providing facelift under the Smart City proposals. This plan will be the major point of discussion at the meeting scheduled at Chennai this week. A Detailed Project Report has been prepared for the same and is expected to get a green signal from the committee. Since Rockfort temple is considered as the most favorite tourist spot in the city it is important to strengthen the infrastructure in and around the temple to meet the expectations of the tourists. Construction of rest house for the tourists, creation of two-wheeler and four-wheeler parking facilities, improvement of roads around the temple, provision of flood light and signage are among the proposed works in and around Rock Fort temple. It has been proposed to renovate the Main Guard Gate by providing illumination so as to showcase it as a standalone monument in the city. Provision would be made to provide signage in addition to the protection of the monument.
